Yes, There’s an App for Recycling, Too!

Alcoa has released an iPhone/iPad App for our residential and commercial customers interested in recycling aluminum cans. The Aluminate App gives you tools to keep track of your recycling, and tells you how much money you may earn by taking them to your nearest recycling center, such as Mann Metals Corp.

The App is free, and allows you to set a goal, track your progress, and gives you the ability to call Mann Metals and ask about our scrap aluminum prices…and then add the current price to the App for better accuracy on how much you can earn with your scrap metal.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel RecyclingStainless steel is an alloy of iron and chromium, and doesn’t rust as easily as iron does. It can withstand exposure to air and moisture without discoloration, hence the term “stainless.” It’s a low-maintenance metal used in everything from surgical instruments, kitchens, appliances, and industrial surfaces. Mann Metals Corp. buys stainless steel from both residential and commercial sellers.

Residential customers may find they have scrap stainless steel in the form of appliances, cookware, flatware, backsplashes, countertops, etc. Some design elements such as switch plates and lamps are also made from stainless steel.

Commercial customers include all kinds of businesses, including restaurants, metal shops, factories, construction and contractors. Remodeling a commercial kitchen? There can be quite a bit of recyclable stainless steel in your demo. Find yourself with stainless steel scrap from installing custom stainless backsplashes, countertops, or design elements?

Nickel is a soft, white, shiny elemental metal that bonds so easily that it is only used as part of an alloy. It may be the most common alloying metal, often used in materials called “superalloys” or “high performance alloys.” It is also commonly used as corrosion prevention when “plating” or coating other metals. Thus the term “nickel-plated” referring to an object with a shiny white metallic surface.

Despite being alloys with many metals in them, the nickel alloys we purchase as scrap metal can be melted down and re-used as new nickel alloy fittings. This can be a great selling-point for eco-conscious or “green”consumers.

Mann Metals Corp buys several types of nickel alloy. If you’re unsure of what you have, or want to know more about what we buy, please contact us.

  • Hastelloy is a trademarked corrosion resistant alloy used in high-temperature, high-stress functions such as distillation or chemical reaction fittings.
  • Haynes 188 is another trademarked “superalloy” with nickel, chromium, tungsten, and colbalt. It is used for jet engine combustion chambers and other high-stress, high-temperature applications.
  • Inco 600, 625, 718 are all trademarked nickel alloys with chromium added. They are used in high-temperature applications.

Brass is a metal alloy composed of copper and zinc. Because it’s made of two very soft metals found near the earth’s surface, it was one of the earliest alloys that humans began to make, along with bronze. Archaeologists believe that ancient Romans were the first to make and use brass around 3,000 BC.

Brass is a soft, easily molded, acoustically interesting, and beautifully shiny yellow metal. With all these strengths, brass has many uses including musical instruments, decorative fixtures, keys, sparkless fittings near flammable substances, and piping.

Mann Metals Corp. purchases several types of brass scrap for recycling. The brass is melted down and re-worked to create new brass objects. Please contact us if you aren’t sure which type of brass you have.

We purchase at top prices, with prompt payment!

  • Yellow Brass: This is an American term for brass that has 33% zinc.
  • Red Brass: Also known as copper alloy C23000, which is composed of 14–16% zinc, 0.05% iron and lead, and the rest of the allow is copper.
  • Bronze: A common name for gunmetal, this is a copper/tin/zinc alloy with 85% copper, 5% tin, 5% lead and 5% zinc.
  • Ampco Bronze: This is a brand name for AMPCO Metal SA’s products which are specialty copper alloys used for corrosion resistance, sparkless fittings, molds, welding, and other uses.
  • Auto Radiators: Most auto radiators contain brass alloys, and we do purchase scrap auto radiators.
