The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) recently announced new specifications have been published in the Scrap Specifications Circular 2016. There are five new nonferrous specifications, and an amendment to the existing specification named Twang, that have been approved by the ISRI Board of Directors. The specifications are as follows: • Ebulent-Lead-Free Bismuth Brass Solids shall consist of scrap castings alloyed with copper, tin, bismuth, and zinc. Castings shall be free of leaded brass attachments and have less than 0.2% alloyed lead or as agreed between buyer and seller. Examples that meet this specification include, but are not limited to, CDA 89833/35/36/37/41/42 and 45. (Page 5) • Ecstatic-Lead-Free Bismuth Brass Turnings shall consist of scrap borings and turnings alloyed with copper, tin, bismuth, and zinc. Turnings shall be unmixed and have less than 0.2% alloyed lead or as agreed between buyer and seller. Examples that meet this specification include, but are not limited to, CDA 89833/35/36/37/41/42 and 45. (Page 5) • Nascent-Leaded Brass Scrap Turnings shall consist of scrap borings and turnings alloyed with copper, zinc, and lead.

(Page 10) ISRI’s scrap specifications are internationally recognised guidelines used by buyers and sellers of recycled materials and products including nonferrous and ferrous scrap, glass cullet, paper stock, plastic, electronics, and tire scrap. The specifications are intended to assist the trading of scrap commodities and are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect the expanding range of commercially recyclable materials.
