Learn More About Carbide & It’s Scrap Value
Carbide is one of the most common tools used in machine shops today. Because it is such a reliable and hard alloy it is great for cutting and the longevity on it. It’s hardness is equal to diamonds…thus making it one of the best (and most expensive) drills bits out there. A great metal to recycle because it is so dense and heavy you will get a lot of weight in a small container.
Scrap Tungsten Carbide
Some people refer to carbide as Tungsten carbide, but it is more commonly known as carbide in the scrap world. Carbide is not a metal that you will find very often, it is not a common drill bit that is from hardware stores…but a very specialized drill bit (or any type of application) that will come from machine shops and other larger commercial industries.
We Will Analyze Your Material
Carbide is slightly magnetic…so don’t let that fool you to think that it is steel. If you don’t know if you have carbide that is no problem…just make sure you keep it separate and we will use our metal analyzer to confirm that it is carbide. Carbide end mills and carbide bits are some of, if not the most common tungsten based items that we get in for scrap, so if you think that you have some other type of carbide or tungsten material bring it in to us. We will use our XRF Analyzer and let you know what grade of material it is and pay you a fair price for it.
