Stainless Steel is the most common of the nickel and high temperature alloys which we purchase. The various series of stainless steel are comprised mainly of nickel, chrome and iron and are valued for their non-corrosive nature. While stainless steel is used in many different applications, it is most familiar in the food, chemical, medical and auto industries.
304 Stainless Steel
Also known as 18/8 (18% chrome and 8% nickel) it is the most common grade. It should be four foot and under and free of other metals and contaminants. There are many other grades of 300 series stainless steel.
May be in the form of sheet, plate, bar, tubes and any other wrought nickel scrap solids that are at least 99% nickel.
Cupro Nickel
This is a copper/nickel alloy, which may be in the form of tube, pipe, sheet, plate or other wrought solids that are either 70/30, 80/20 or 90/10 alloys.
Nickel Alloys
While there are many types of nickel alloys, some of the most common are Inconel, 330 Stainless Steel, Hastalloy and Monel.
Carbide, or tungsten carbide, is usually found in the form of end mills, inserts or saw tips. It is heavy at about 16 times the weight of water.
Titanium and titanium alloy scrap are used in a variety of applications from the aerospace industry to medical uses. This is because of titanium’s exceptional properties including corrosion resistance, high melting temperature, strength and light weight.
