All our raw materials are made from 100% recycled material.
Our raw material is sourced from recycled material which includes scrap brass components eg. taps, valves, water meters, bullet shells etc. Copper, zinc and a range of alloying elements (Lead, arsenic, aluminium etc.) are added to the molten metal to match the specification of the many brass alloys necessary to manufacture components to customer specifications.
Aluminium and Zinc
Various grades of aluminium ingot are purchased to specification for production. All material is delivered to our site with a material test certificate. A sample is taken from each batch and analysed on our optical emission spectrometer to ensure the material meets international specifications.
During the melting process various amounts of dross (oxides) are generated. This material is rich in copper, zinc and aluminium and sold for further processing – nothing goes to waste!
