About Cocks and Faucets Scrap


What Is Red Brass?

Red Brass is an alloy comprised of more than 80% copper, 8-10% of tin, 2-4% of zinc and a very small quantity of lead. Since it is primarily used for making guns, it is commonly known as Gunmetal.

The huge quantity of copper content gives the metal a reddish color. It may occasionally contain grey-black or black spots that are developed due to its exposure to silver nitrate. Red brass carries higher price than Yellow brass due to the presence of greater amount of copper in them.

Red brass is used in plumbing applications in the manufacture of materials such as sprinkler heads, faucet valves, water pumps, water tubes, meters and fixings. In addition, it is also used in the making of musical instruments and jewelry. Red brass withstands very high temperatures. Recycled Red brass scrap is of high demand as it is extensively used in remodeling of plumbing systems.

Red Brass Price

The high copper content in Red Brass makes it pricier than Yellow scrap. The pricing depends upon the amount of lead or steel contamination. Red brass free of high lead and steel contamination fetches best price.

Also, make sure that the Red Brass is sorted and separated out from other red metal alloys. Note that it may not be easy for a normal person to carry out the sorting. It may require some professional assistance.
