Nickel can be combined with other metals to create a strong resistance to corrosion and high-temperature scaling. Nickel alloys are typically made up of 72-83% nickel and have soft magnetic properties commonly used in electrical devices.
Cobalt alloys are commonly used in metalworking as a strengthening alloy in steel and iron alloys. Cobalt is a strong metal that is corrosion and heat resistant.
Titanium is considered one of the strongest metals in the world. Although light weight, it’s resistant to heat, salt, and water making it ideal for a variety of applications such as jewelry, dental products, airplanes and ships.
Tungsten alloys are typically made up of 90-97% tungsten. The combination of other metals helps improve the ductility and machinability of the resulting alloy. It’s used across a wide variety of applications such as aerospace and automotive industries and radiation shielding.
Why Recycle Alloys?
Alloys are created to enhance the properties of the metals they contain, making them ideal for different industrial uses. Recycling them gives them a second life to be reused across different applications.
- Long lifetimes: 57% of all mined nickel is still in use
- Diverts alloys from the landfill
- Minimizes toxins released in the environment.
- Make money– we’ll PAY for your alloy
