For a sustainable future.

For a more sustainable future in construction.

With its 100 % share of recycled material, the cuprolife copper tube makes a sustainable difference, and thus makes a significant contribution to the advancement of building and construction as well as building services. In the future, unnecessary consumption of resources can be avoided and buildings rendered usable for many generations.

Recycling loop – 100 % recycled content.

Copper is unlimited – and it is also 100 % recyclable, making it a unique material for ecologically sustainable developments. The fact that the quality of copper is maintained at every stage is a decisive factor. Wieland is already in a position to offer well over 90 % recycled content in many semifinished products, depending on the material. In some cases, even 100 % is nowadays a reality. One prime example here is cuprolife.

Why settle for less when you can have 100 %?

100 % recycled content.

cuprolife consists of 100 % recycled copper.


100 % quality.

cuprolife ensures the highest quality standards because copper is infinitely recyclable without any adverse effects on quality.

100 % clean drinking water.

cuprolife guarantees a particularly high level of purity and the highest drinking water quality.


100 % sustainable action.

cuprolife enables more environmental protection in the building and construction industry, and makes a relevant contribution to sustainability.


As the starting point when verifying cuprolife, TÜV SÜD tested the procedure for calculating the 100 %

recycled content*.

Wieland uses both primary and secondary raw materials when processing copper. The secondary raw materials are mainly scrap from the recycling loop. The decision to use raw materials that have already been an integral part of the cycle means this process will require fewer ores to be mined in the future. From the manufacturing viewpoint, raw materials of different origins are proportionately contained in the end product.


*Mass balance approach, based on ISO 14021, verified by TÜV SÜD.

100 % – A new milestone for Wieland.
