Remember that metal conducts heat much differently than ceramic tile. If someone puts a hot pan down on the copper, the entire sheet will become hot very quickly. Could be a burn hazard.

I agree with MPCH. Other means to do this are to pack fiberglass insulation around all sides of the pipe, both horiz. and vert. where possible, and to consider suspending the ceiling material on hat channel, so if the pipe makes contact with any of the wood, it has minimal transfer into the ceiling material. I would first coordinate this with any sound attenuation details you can find online--especially if your detail has any fire rating reqs. (It didn't sound like it, but I have no context not being able to see the full route of the drain pipe). If you aren't satisfied that you fully understand what approach to take, it may be worth your while to work with an accoustical engr. to derive the best solution. The Assembly and attention to detail in installation are important. Unless the ceiling is suspended already, then I would consider this as a last resort, as how you suspend the ceiling is just as important as the rating of the material you use. If approached correctly, you spend your money one time and the problem is corrected appropriately. Happy Houzzing.

Copper can be a very good countertop material.........

You will need to remove the tile and put down a plywood base for gluing the copper sheets down properly.

Copper will change color over time which is ok if you like the look.

It also can be dinged and dented easily, but this can also be a look that is rustic and fun.

Copper has anitmicrobial properties which is a great quality.

It can also be less expensive then granite or quartz.........

I would recommend using it if you like all of its qualities...
