Copper Naphthenate is the copper salt of naphthenic acid.
- Naphthenic acid is a term commonly used in the petroleum industry to collectively refer to all of the carboxylic acids naturally occurring in crude oil.
- Copper naphthenate is most widely used in wood preservation and for protecting other cellulosic materials such as textiles and cordage from damage by decay fungi and insects. Other metal naphthenates are used as paint driers, rubber adhesion promoters, lubricant additives, and catalysts where oil solubility is required.
- Copper is generally cleared from the body unless in acutely toxic quantities. It is stored in the liver and marrow.9
