Pure copper, also known as bright Copper, is usually used for wire. It is the most valuable of scrap copper.
No.1 heavy scrap copper, which consists of uncoated, clean, unalloyed copper and can include punchings, clippings, bus bars, pipe, wire over 1/16’ thick with no burnt or brittle wire and commutator segments., has the highest price next to pure copper.
The third is scrap copper No.2. It consists of clean, non-alloyed copper. It needs to be clean, but can be oxidized or coated clippings, bus bars, punchings, commutator segments. It can also include clean oxidized pipe or tubing, but should be free of excessive solder. Light gauge, clean, coated or oxidized wire is also allowed, but must be free of fine gauge wire. Remember all No. 2 scrap copper should be free of excessive oxidization, ash, brittle burnt wire and scale.
Copper Identification
In the olden days, copper is commonly used for making utensils. You can find it very easily in many daily usages. It is rather easy to identify it. While In modern days, some of their usages have been replaced by other metals. What should we do?
1. Feature. Remember copper is a kind of non-ferrous metal. Advanced technology has given you a more powerful tool, magnet. If it can’t be sucked by it, we can separate it with some other metals primarily.
2. New usage. Copper is a conductive material, so it is mostly used in wiring and electronics. So most of the scrap wire contain copper.
