Brass is an alloy made of various portions of copper and
zinc. By varying the amount of copper and zinc, properties can be changed
creating variations of soft and hard brass.
Today nearly all brass alloys are recycled. The most
common types of brass are:
red brass and
Red brass has reddish appearance due to the higher amounts of
copper in it and typically has a higher value. Although red brass is not as
common it is still a regularly recycled material desired by scrap metal dealers
due to its higher copper content.
Yellow brass has a yellowish look and due to its durability
and corrosion resistant properties it is typically found as valves, faucets and
plumbing fixtures, fittings, gears, ammunition, musical instruments and even
decorative items because of its gold like appearance.
