Resource Library

Copper Development Association provides a range of resources in support of the correct and efficient use of copper and copper alloys for major applications.

Most of our publications are downloadable electronically and a few are available as hard copies.  Use the search option or click on a category to see the publications/software listed under that topic.

If you can't find the information you are looking for, try the following:

  • FAQs - on alloys and applications
  • Copper Key - for equivalents of copper alloys worldwide, their chemical compositions, material designation and national standards
  • Copper Data Center - a searchable database of over 60,000 scientific abstracts from research papers related to the application of copper
  • Copper Life Cycle Data - for up-to-date life cycle data on key copper products
  • Kompass - for supplier listings
