Copper sheets and plates have excellent hot or cold workability and is ductile when heated. Copper sheets / plates are also noted for their high electrical and thermal conductivity, and good corrosion resistance. Highly durable and designed for interior and exterior use. Available in a brushed, polished, and oxidized (oil rubbed) finish, they are crafted from high-quality C464000 naval copper alloy, which is known for its exceptionally high durability. We only use waterjet cutting, which ensures our copper sign letters have tight inside corners and intricate details. Custom copper name plates are an affordable alternative to traditional plates. Copper is a corrosion resistant metal alloy composed of copper and zinc. This metal is oftentimes mistaken for bronze, which is a similar alloy made with copper and tin. Brass is traditionally more gold in color while bronze has a red tone. Brass is often chosen for name plates due to its rich, gold color and decorative quality. Common applications include commemorative plaques, signs, and other decorative nameplates. Nameplates can also create custom brass name plates using leaded brass, which helps increase machinability. It is also a highly malleable type of metal and is commonly used when casting is required due to its low melting point. Custom brass name plates are often used in environments where sparks cannot be struck and electrical and plumbing applications.
