Low residual ductile quality shredded clips are defined as shredded black 1000 series carbon steel scrap. The thickness of this metal grade is 1/8 inch and over, and the minimum average density is roughly 75 PCF. Additionally, low residual ductile quality shredded clips must not contain any more than 0.50 percent of manganese, as specified by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries. Similar to low residual black foundry busheling, the sale of low residual ductile quality shredded clips grade is subject to the agreement between the supplier and consumer.
