Yellow Brass is a copper alloy that comprises of about 60-70% copper, 30-40% of zinc, tin and lead in traces. It must be free of iron, paint, plastic, washers, glass, etc. The presence of more zinc makes it look more yellowish in color. It is brighter in color and more reflective than Red Brass. Due to its lower copper content, it is priced lesser than Red Brass.

Having bulk quantity of Yellow Brass with you?

You can arrange for on-site pickup of large quantities of Yellow Brass by leading scrap yards. However, scrap yards offer lesser scrapping price due to the lesser copper content in them. Mixed scrap or Yellow Brass scrap containing impurities will be paid even lesser.

Sorting and cleaning of scrap will bring in more money and is worth the effort required to do so. Otherwise, scrap yards will accept them only as general brass scrap, by paying very less money.
