Brass scrap prices change on a regular basis, so you don’t want to prolong selling your material any longer than necessary. To get the best value, you will want to take it in quickly. The prices you can get will depend largely on the grading of your scrap brass and also the price of copper and zinc on the International Metal Exchange.
One of the main factors of grading any metal is the level of impurities. Impurities for Brass include things such as plastic coating, steel cords, lead or other attachments that are used when the product is manufactured. Obviously the less attachments, the cleaner the Brass, the higher the value of your brass scrap!
As different levels of impurities can give your brass a different classification, it’s a good idea to drop into one of our sites with a sample to obtain an accurate quote from one of our expert scrap buyers.
