Selling Tungsten Carbide Scrap: Good For You and the Environment

Tungsten carbide scrap is one of the most recyclable and valuable materials in the world. This is because carbide is the second hardest and densest material on earth after diamonds.

Only diamonds can scratch themselves and carbide; and only carbide can scratch itself and diamonds. You will typically find inserts made from carbide, along with round tooling like thread mills, reamers, end mills and drill bits. You might also find it in PCB drills, saw tips, rounds, blanks and wear parts.

How to Identify It?

The first thing that you will notice about something that's made from tungsten carbide is that it is a bit heavier than it looks. However, though heavy, carbide will shatter if you drop it on concrete or a similar surface. One of its main characteristics is that it will not pit or rust, so you can rule many metals out by sight.

Very small pieces (an inch or so) of tungsten carbide scrap, and very large heavy pieces (like 50 pounds or so) are magnetic, so look for rust and pits on these items; or test them to see if steel or some other thing can scratch them. Most tungsten scrap is only slightly magnetic, so the magnet test is usually an effective choice.

Some carbide might also have braising on it. This metal is still valuable, though you will get less for it than pure carbide. When you see something that has a line around it, but you're sure it's carbide, it might be carbide braised with steel. You will see this commonly in round drills and in the mining bits you find in rumble strips. Other sources for large amounts of carbide include:

• Dyes • Cardboard cutters and • Carbide Sand/Sludge

Tips rarely contain any carbide, though at first glance, they look like they do. However they are mostly steel. If it has a square end, chances are it is steel.

Carbide Sludge

Companies that grind down carbide bits create a powder called carbide sand that becomes wet, and is then called carbide sludge. This sludge is slightly less valuable than tungsten carbide with braising on it, and a large vat of it is equal in value to a large carbide tool. Most people who get access to this have deals directly with the factories that produce it. Though profitable, you might find it hard to come by and messy to transport.

Any industry that works with a variety of different metals, there are more than likely plenty of scraps left over. Those remaining pieces are called scraps because the business has no more use for that piece of material. However, something like tungsten carbide scrap has plenty of value left in it.

Whenever tungsten is fused with carbide, it creates the tough compound that is known as tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide's chemical is WC. In the beginning, tungsten will be in a powdered form. Eventually, when enough pressure is put on the carbide it can be made into a number of different shapes. Tungsten carbide is used in products that you may have never thought were made from tungsten. The material is used so often because it is stronger, denser, and firmer that several other materials.

When businesses throw out any scrap metals, they are also throwing out any chance of obtaining a little extra cash. When the scraps are thrown outdoors or into the trash can, that trash will eventually be thrown out and you will not see it again. That does not have to be the case when you have left over scraps. There are companies that will actually pay you for your tungsten carbide scrap. Pay you? Yes, money! You can get the most out of the scrap, while being able to take some cash with you.

No business wants to add to the scrap piles and trash piles that they have to get rid of. When you sell your scraps, you are doing your part by lowering the number of materials that are filling the lands. So, you can do your part in helping the environment and it is relatively easy.

Before you make a decision on where you want to sell you scraps, you will want to search for the best prices. You will find that some companies will pay you more than other companies. If you are looking for a company that will give you what your scrap is worth, contact a professional today.
