Common forms of Scrap Brass we Buy and Sell

Mixed Scrap Brass

The price of scrap brass is roughly around 2 thirds of the price of scrap copper,

Brass is an alloy is usually made of copper and zinc. Most brass contains about 60% copper this explains why brass is 2 thirds of the price of copper.

Mixed Brass usually comes in the form of taps and valves, We buy this type of brass on a regular basis, We also buy Brass ornaments, Brass sheeting and anything else made from Brass.

The photo above is of brass taps covered in chrome, sometimes we get new customers asking us what metal taps are made of as the coating disguises the brass underneath, when they are told it's valuable brass they are pleasantly surprised but also express their regret with how many taps they have thrown into a skip thinking they had no value, the quality requirement of Brass has increased over the last couple of years and Scrap Brass with flexi-pipe or plastic may have some weight or price reduction for our time removing the unwanted attachments, the main reason for this is we can no longer sell brass unless the metal is almost 100 percent brass.

The above picture shows brass with unwanted flexipipe attached

Tip: Scratch your metal taps with a file if a yellow golden colour shines through then it's unmistakably brass.
