Brass is a golden coloured alloy of copper and zinc that is malleable and highly resistant to corrosion.
In the industrial field it is used in the manufacture of boilers, weapons, wires, electrical terminals, condenser tubes, musical instruments, metal containers, valves for industrial use, computer cases and in welds.
Brass is one of the most used materials in the manufacture of doorknobs, lamps, curtain rods and other decorative elements.
Because of the price of brass scrap (it has a high copper content), it is a material that is worth reclaiming.
