Carbide Recycling?

scrap-carbide-03Businesses in many industries utilize tungsten carbide products and accessories on a daily basis. This is not a surprise as carbide is a superior choice for making drill and mining bits, end mills, surgical instruments, cutting blades, weights, gears, cogs, jewelry, and various accessories for the sporting industry. Most businesses favor using carbide products because the material boasts three times the strength of stainless steel, never pits or rusts, resists heat, and is cost effective.

Domestic manufacturers favor making carbide products however not just because of the material’s attributes, but because it is one of the few that can be 100% recycled. Unfortunately, the U.S. has very few deposits of tungsten ore. With almost all the world’s carbide is coming from foreign countries today, manufacturers must rely on recycled material to avoid being forced into purchasing it from foreign countries.
