Red Brass

Red brass scrap, also commonly known as gunmetal, is an alloy that appears red in color. Due to having at least an 80% copper content, red brass is more valuable than yellow brass. Red brass is most often found in use with plumbing fixtures such as valves for faucets and in water meters, etc. It is also used in the production of jewelry and some musical instruments.
