How to recover GOLD and SILVER from recycled electronics – keyboard


Hello Youtubers in today’s video I would like
to show you what is inside a keyboard. So my very first assumption is that there
will be a Mylar – a foil from polyethylene terephthalate which contains silver. But let’s check. Our first prey is a cable with old fashioned
connector that might contain some gold plated pins. But I presume that we will know better in
the future in some future video. So my first assumption was right. That is definitely Mylar. There an is unexpected surprise. Nice little golden plate connector on low
grade board. But what is this – golden fingers. I never expected to see this coming. If you want to see how to scrap these connectors
just watch some of my older videos links are in the description. As I have mentioned before – Mylar is a foil
from polyethylene terephthalate which contains silver. They are usually 2 of them, which are separated
by middle foil that is blank and has now real value. These things are easy to store, but you need
tones of them to get some decent amount of silver. OK, I think we are approaching to an end so
let’s make some recapitulation. The keyboard is mostly plastics, be careful
some keys might just pop out and please recycle all as plastic to help the environment. Than we have the mylar, actually 2 of them,
the foils with silver content. A board with golden fingers. But I think that’s rare because this keyboard
was pretty old. And some copper cable with golden plated connectors. And that’s all. So, thank you very much for watching you were
awesome, watch my other videos, leave a comment, what you want me to do next time. Again thanks a lot and have a nice day.
