About the cooper and stainless steel that are used for our rain chains
We use cooper and stainless steel for our rain chains. Each metal has unique characteristics so we will explain about their features:
- About cooper
The chemical symbol for cooper is Cu and has a unique red color on this simple metal substance. The use of cooper can be found dating back early as 9,000BC and due to having low electric resistance it is used widely such as electric lines and daily goods. Also, cooper has high water resistance and anticorrosion property while the color changing gradually from red to black and finally patina green. This color is formed by a compound called cooper carbonate, from the elements in the atmosphere and water. Cooper is often used on roofs of traditional buildings, adding beautiful patina green color to the scenery.
