Scrap Cable Prices

A cable is an insulated wire or wires housed in a protective casing. Cables are used to send electricity or telecommunication signals.

What metals are inside cables?

Cables can contain many different metals, copper is the most common metal used, also used are aluminium and steel. Steel and aluminium have a lower conductivity than copper but are being increasingly used due to their lower cost. It can also depend on the environment in which they’re used, due to corrosion or rust risks. Less common is gold and silver that is also used for electric cables. Gold and silver are great for conductivity, also too costly for wide commercial usage.

Where are cables generally found?

Electrical devices contain a cable that conducts electrical current. As such, there is a huge range of items which will contain electrical cables. You will find large amounts of computer monitors and TVs. Also found inside household electronics such as fridges, microwaves and computer hard drives. Reclamet are specialists in recycling wires.
