Description

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical and electrical properties. Today, almost 90% of all brass alloys are recycled.[7] Because brass is not ferromagnetic, it can be separated from ferrous scrap by passing the scrap near a powerful magnet. Brass scrap is collected and transported to the foundry, where it is melted and recast into billets.
