What's Mix Red Brass ?
Shall consist of turnings fromred brass composition material and should be sold subject to sample oranalysis.
Red brass is really not brass as it is an alloy of copper, zinc, and tin. It is also called gunmetal.
Red brass scrap recycle value
The recycling of brass scrap is a basic essential of the economics of the industry.
Brass for extrusion and hot stamping is normally made from a basic melt of scrap of similar composition adjusted by the addition of virgin copper or zinc as required to meet the specification before pouring.
The use of brass scrap bought at a significantly lower price than the metal mixture price means that the cost of the fabricated brass is considerably less than it might otherwise be.
The presence in brass of some other elements such as lead is often required to improve machinability so such scrap is frequently acceptable.
Besides the common free-machining brasses, there are many others made for special purposes with properties modified to give extra strength, hardness, corrosion resistance or other attributes, so strict segregation of scrap is essential.
Brass scrap arising from machining operations can be economically remelted but should be substantially free from excess lubricant, especially those including organic compounds that cause unacceptable fume during remelting.
