Background

Because copper-based alloys are so common and are made up of various light elements, it is difficult for recyclers to accurately verify grades using old methods. The KT-100 Katana has the ability to easily and quickly identify light atomic number elements in copper alloys, such as aluminum bronzes, silicon bronzes, and beryllium coppers.
