Copper expanded metal comes from 0.050" thick copper sheet that is expanded. We stock copper expanded metal in 300 to 500 foot coils. Copper expanded metal is thin enough to be rolled by hand and pieces measuring over 4' in length will typically be rolled up for shipping purposes.
With our copper expanded metal the long way of the diamond runs along the width. We can typically cut pieces that are 10' or shorter to size along the width, but you will need to call a sales representative at 877-484-0088 to discuss that option.
The copper expanded metal openings measure as follows:
Short way of diamond opening = ~ 3/4"
Long of diamond opening = ~ 1 3/4"
Short way of diamond opening = ~ 1/2"
Long of diamond opening = ~1 1/8"
Copper expanded metal is typically used for chimney caps, animal guards, and other projects that are decorative, where conductivity is needed, or that requires a long lasting, anti-corrosive metal. Copper expanded metal would not be recommended for uses in grills, trailers, catwalks etc. since it isn't strong enough for those applications.
Copper expanded metal is very corrosion resistant but will develop a patina on the outer surface if it is exposed to outdoor elements, which will act as a barrier to the metal directly beneath it. The patina on copper expanded metal can occur naturally or be induced by chemicals, and can range in many different colors, with brown being the most common. Copper expanded metal is very easy to bend and solder.
