Buying bronze

We buy all types of bronze

At RMC Polska Sp. z o.o. we buy and sell all types of bronze scrap including magnetic and non-magnetic.

Bronze scrap is characterised by its reddish-brown colour and consists of an alloy of copper (above 80%) and tin. As bronze often has other metals in its composition, its evaluation requires analysis of the delivered material with a spectrometer.

Bronze scrap delivered to the site must be free of all impurities, especially steel, aluminium and other metals, which the foundries do not accept.

Main types of bronze:

magnetic bronze

Magnetic bronze

It is characterised by a rather dark, brownish hue shade and, as its name suggests, it exhibits magnetising properties. magnetising. Chemically, these bronzes have significantly less copper which makes them slightly less valuable than non-magnetic bronzes. non-magnetic bronzes.

non-magnetic bronze

Non-magnetic bronze

Non-magnetic bronzes, on the other hand, are the complete opposite of the magnetic bronzes. They have a high proportion of copper, which their price automatically goes up. Due to their high copper content copper content, these bronzes do not exhibit magnetic characteristics.

bronze shavings

Shavings of bronze

Bronze chips, an alloy of copper with other metals, are purchased on the basis of composition and moisture analysis. Their price depends on the content of copper and other alloying metals. The material must be free of free iron and other impurities.

Scrap bronze - price

The purchase price of bronze depends on its alloy. The scrap delivered to us for purchase should be segregated into grades (magnetic bronze, non-magnetic bronze, bronze chips).

By individual agreement with the trader, we can sort the scrap by dividing the bronze into different alloys and price it individually (price depending on the composition of the metal alloy).
Bronze prices are set on an ongoing basis, even several times a day. Our price list depends on the price of copper and tin on the LME (London Metal Exchange) , the euro exchange rate and the market situation. For larger deliveries, the price of bronze can be set individually.

Brown - trivia

Bronze has been known to mankind for at least five millennia. It was so important for the development of civilisation that the period after the Stone Age was called the Bronze Age. In ancient times, bronze was used to make everyday objects and ornaments. Depending on the application, the proportions of the alloying elements were changed.
The production of bronze was already dealt with by specialised metallurgists in ancient times. They were respected in society and very important to it, as evidenced by the rich burials with casting tools placed with the deceased in the grave.
