Angles and splice bars are a standard long product in steel, aluminum and other metals as specified by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries. The arms of the angle bars may be equal or unequal to one another.
Angles and splice bars are exclusively published by Scrap Price Bulletin as a broker’s buying price in the Birmingham market. Full details about Scrap Price Bulletin’s pricing methodology can be found here.
Angle bars are used to create supported corners and outside rims on various walls and surfaces. They may be fastened with welding or drilling methods. The size and coating of the angle bar may also determine in what application it will be used. Angles and splice bars may also be used in railroad construction. They can be used in conjunction to railroad ties or to create a joint. In most cases, angles and splice bars are used to reinforce a structure due to their high strength and reliability based on the make of their metal. Recycling these bars, at their end of life or their scrap, can help to renew products and structures.
