Copper is a soft, ductile, lustrous metal with a pink hue that exhibits very high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper is very soft and malleable but can have considerable strength when alloyed with elements such as beryllium, chromium or tellurium. Most commonly copper is alloyed with zinc to form brass or with tin to form bronze alloys.

For plating applications, copper is commonly used as an underplanting to enhance adhesion of deposits, improve electrical properties, impair migration of alloying elements into the final plated deposit or to improve the corrosion resistance of the overall deposit. As a final deposit, copper plating services are used for enhancing the brazing, thermal or electrical conductivity of substrate materials, as a high-temperature lubricant, as a heat treatment stop-off or for jacketing of projectiles. Copper can be plated matte to bright and with a wide range of deposit hardness and ductility.
