Copper is one of the most recycled metals on the planet.
At Sydney Metal Traders, we repurpose old copper goods by melting them down and reshaping them into new ones. We have the best technology and machinery to ensure your copper is properly recycled and no damage to any of its properties is caused. It is believed that the bulk of the 700 billion pounds of copper mined from the soil by humanity throughout the centuries is still in use today. Recycling makes it possible for the copper to be put back into use, where the metal doesn’t loose its property when it changes shape or form.
A lot f the copper recycled in Sydney is handled by Sydney Metal Traders. The process we follow is amazing and allows maximum extraction of the metal from scrapped goods.
The Scrap Metal Traders team visually assesses and grades the metal into several categories. Bare bright copper wire, the purest and most precious copper, can be melted down and recast without requiring much further work.
We may refine it with some fire, and in some circumstances to achieve the finest quality. Lower quality copper is electrolytically purified since it contains impurities. We accomplish this by melting the copper, throwing it into anodes, and electroplating it.
