concern you with many of the imports: (what are they hiding?)

Home of the Finest Copper Sinks in the
World... We back up our claim with the most robust

The video below is of a typical imported copper sink. This one
happens to come from China however the seller claims it comes from Mexico. Note how
flexible the bottom of the sink is. They use 16 gauge annealed copper.
The difference is that we use 14 gauge cold rolled copper which is many times
harder. In fact, I can stand in one of our sinks without damaging it at all.
cold rolled copper has a yield strength that is about 7 times more than
American Copper - how it is made: Basically, copper ore is mined in different parts of the U.S. and the ore found is generally less than 1% copper. This ore is ground and put in flotation tanks and the resultant precipitant is about 28% copper. This material is sent to a flash smelting smelter which refines it to about 70% copper. This material then goes into a flash converting furnace and is brought to 98% purity. Anode furnaces refine it further to 99.6% purity as the copper is cast in to plates or anodes. The refinery then brings these plates (anodes) into an acid solution with stainless steel plates on each side for 10 days. An electric current is applied which attract the copper to the stainless plates. The impurities, which can contain gold and silver, are left as residue on the bottom of the tank. The resultant copper is now 99.9% pure. This is American copper.
We work on the typical manufacturer margin of 10% - that's it!
