The Wide Variety Of Metals Recycled At The Lucky Group

Metal recycling is a very essential element in terms of saving the environment and helping sustain our resources. This is not because we are running short of them but because of the waste that the production process produces along with the additional amounts of fuel used as well as the amount of energy used to create virgin raw metals for the manufacturers.

Recycling then becomes an important way to get rid of the metal waste that comes from a variety of products such as cars, home appliances, industrial castings as well as food products. Recycling most metals on the other hand barely takes up 5 to 10 percent of the energy it takes to make fresh metals. The Lucky Group’s division Lucky Recycling, takes care of this waste in their modern facilities by first checking them for toxic or hazardous chemicals and then segregating and processing them for packaging for their customers. They recycle a wide variety of metals for manufacturing applications as given below.

Aluminum: One of the worlds most recycled metals, aluminum scrap in Dubai is usually segregated into Aluminum plates, wheels, extrusions, aluminum wire, castings, sows as well as mixed alloy blocks.

Brass: Brass being one of the most malleable recyclable metals, it is no wonder that almost all of the brass produced today is produced by recycled brass. Out here they are divided and packaged into brass ingots, and pipes.

Copper: Having great electrical conductivity and being extremely ductile, this metal has a huge demand considering that most copper produced years ago is still in use today in some form or the other. At the Lucky Recycling plant, copper scrap is available as barley, berry, birch cliff, candy as well as copper ingots.

Stainless Steel: With an end of life recycling ratio of about 80 to 90 percent, stainless steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world and has been recycled for decades. Out here, they are segregated into plate scrap and pipe scrap.

Lucky Group is one of the top metal recycling companies in Dubai. They pride themselves on strong and transparent business relationships with a notion to give their clients the best in quality that the world has to offer.

How Sustainability And Recycling Go Hand In Hand

The word sustainability has different meanings and has been defined in a multiple number of ways according to the times that these definitions were created and the situations they were created in. The most recent one connects the term sustainability to man’s ability to sustain himself and the ecology around him and preserve that same ecology in the same state for the generations to come.

Governments today have begun to attach the environment as a part of their policy, using the environment as a two-way commodity. What you give is what you get. The environment has a maximum level of tolerance beyond which it loses its ability to assimilate and regenerate. Over mining or over extraction of resources from a certain place often leads to side effects which are uncontrollable and take a long time to regenerate and recover. However with the advent of recycling, we are now able to sustain the environment by reducing the amount of waste material that results from production and use of commodities. This in a way controls the balance and sustains the environment and gives us an opportunity to give back and contribute in the process.

Hence recycling of materials especially metals is very beneficial and helps in the sustainability process. Scrap metal recyclers play a vital role by processing the scrap metals and making them available in packages for manufacturers to utilize and reuse.

We at the Lucky Group have a mission to cater to the specific scrap metal needs of our clients while expanding our sourcing points through transparent and strategic alliances to give the best value to our customers. We provide the highest level of services from scrap metal recycling to aluminum alloy manufacturing in Dubai adding value to numerous metal recycling companies the world over.

Brass A Sustainable Alloy

Brass is an alloy created by a mixture of copper and zinc. Known to have been found out since ancient times, its true value as an alloy was not understood or rather discovered until the post medieval period. The varying amounts of zinc and copper are used to obtain a large variety of brasses with different properties. Hence brass is not a obtained directly but is a product of two other metals.

The most commonly used brass is yellow brass the other two being red brass and semi-red brass. Yellow brass usually contains around 60 to 70% copper, and around 30% zinc with tiny amounts of lead and tin; the reason for its name being its color. Having a wide variety of applications, the most common places brass is used in, is in the form screws, pins, door handles, hand rails, light fittings, bath fittings (polished in chrome) and in marine ship building. One can notice that most of these applications have something to do with water or touch. The reason for these being, brass along with being a highly malleable and a having great thermal and electrical conductivity is also highly waterproof and can withstand high pressure in the harshest of environments (in the case of dezincification resistant brass). Brass also exhibits germicidal properties which is why they are the best alloys for use in applications where human touch is common. The greatest advantage of using brass in multiple applications is that it is a sustainable metal. It is a known fact that brass product supplier and manufacturers throughout the world depend on recycled brass scrap for their resources. Producing new brass from copper and zinc is simply too uneconomical and also results in a large amount of waste materials. Hence brass is an environmentally friendly alloy and is also hundred percent recyclable.

Sources of scrap brass are few in Dubai, the main scrap metal recycler being Lucky Recycling a division of Lucky Group. Lucky Group being and environmentally conscious body tries to make the availability of brass scrap easier to manufacturers and does that in the most ecologically beneficial way possible.
