Scrap metal classification and its effect on prices
Scrap copper prices Chicago are affected by the quality of the metal. Metals have different classifications that make it a higher or lower grade, below we have provided some extra information about the different grades. Grade 1: The metal has no associated alloys in the material. There should be no corrosion associated with scrap metal and should be of a certain size and diameter.
Grade 2: Metals are usually made of alloy, and the primary metal is the metal you want to scrap. ie Grade 2 copper is usually 99% pure while Grade 1 copper is 100% pure. To get the highest grade (to get the best scrap metal price), the metals should be free of any foreign impurities. The London Metal Exchange (LME) displays historical data in dollars as well as daily metal prices. We recommend that you always call your local scrap dealer for daily rates.
