What are Scrap Copper Granules?

Granulated copper, or copper granules, is a refined form of the red metal. 

As the name suggests, scrap copper wire is pushed through a granulating machine and broken into tiny pieces.

The concept of granulating copper is so that any waste material, such as insulation, can be removed, providing a much better quality recycled material.

As with any refinement process, separating products and ensuring pure copper granules will fetch a better price.

Where can I find copper granules?

Granulated copper is usually an industrial process whereby commercial businesses and operations would produce copper granulated from offcuts of wire and other swarf.

Although, the business of stripping copper cable and making copper granules has become quite lucrative.

Many businesses in the industry now apply this method of granulation of standard copper cable and other off-cuts, in turn, for a better profit return. 

That said, copper in its sole form can be found in both commercial and domestic environments. These include large appliances and electronics such as computers.

Plumbing and insulations, as well as extension cords.
