Materials Guide

Materials Definitions:

#1 Copper 

Classified as clean, unpainted copper with a minimum diameter of 1/16th of an inch. In order to qualify as #1 Copper, the material must be free of all contaminants such as solder and paint. 

Bare Bright Copper

Having the highest scrap copper price of all the grades, Bare Bright can be described as brand new wire stripped of it’s outer-casing. It must be new, clean and write with absolutely no contamination allowed for the highest scrap price. 

#2 Copper 

Classified as a very similar grade of copper as #1, however it can contain a certain degree of paint and/or solder. 

Clean Aluminum 

Non-flat aluminum pieces used in structural applications.  Typically “C” and “L” shapes. Clean state of aluminum extrusions is achieved by containing no traces of steel screws, nuts, bolts, etc. or any other non-conforming attachments. In addition, there may not be excessive lives of paint or caulk in order to qualify as clean. 

Radiators (Copper & Brass)

Radiators removed from an older model automobile, containing copper & brass inside it. Accepted in either dirty or clean states, a clean radiator is one which has had the plastic ends on both sides of the radiator removed. A higher scrap value is given to those radiators which are clean.
