Recycling Your Brass Scrap Metal
Brass scrap metal recycling is a common way for people to earn money.
Brass has been a well-used material for decoration due to its bright, gold-like appearance. It is commonly used for drawer pulls and doorknobs. Most eating utensils contain brass due to properties such as having a low melting point, high workability, durability, and electrical and thermal conductivity.
Brass is a copper alloy commonly found in plumbing and fixtures. It is also found in car radiators, door knobs, and in trim hardware.
The most well-known copper alloy families are brass (copper-zinc), bronze (copper-tin) and copper-nickel.
Industrial uses of brass result in many types of scrap, such as turnings, borings, and grindings.
