Tungsten Recycling Experts

Tungsten is one of the most unique and rare of the base metals. Classified as a strategic metal, it has the highest melting point of all the elements, and is incredibly hard in its purest form. It’s also finite, which means tungsten recycling is imperative to preserving the limited natural supply. It’s unique qualities and scarcity directly contribute to high tungsten scrap price. However, value greatly depends on the grade, form and quality of the tungsten scrap

Where Tungsten Is Found

  • Hard metal - Cutting tools and wear parts
  • Alloy add - Jet engine parts
  • Armaments - Military Use
  • Filaments - Halogen Lamps

In its impure state, tungsten is brittle and difficult to work with. But in pure form, the metal can be cut with a hacksaw and manipulated in a variety of ways.For this reason, tungsten recycling is extremely  important to the hard metals industry, who primarily uses carbide-cutting tools, wear parts and spray powders. The metal is also ideal for high-temperature applications, including electrical conductive, fluorescent lighting filaments, heating elements, the armament for missiles and more. Tungsten is also commonly alloyed with other metals to strengthen them.
