Steel / Metal Scrap
Modern steels are made with varying combinations of alloy metals to fulfill many purposes. Carbon steel, composed simply of iron and carbon, accounts for 90% of steel production. Iron and steel are used widely in the construction of roads, railways, other infrastructure, appliances, and buildings. Most large modern structures, such as stadiums and skyscrapers, bridges, and airports, are supported by a steel skeleton. Even those with a concrete structure will employ steel for reinforcing. Other elements are added to iron to make steel to increase its hardness, ductility and tensile strength.
In many cases the presence of these other added elements affects the value of Scrap Steel and with the added knowledge of the various markets we can give very competitive prices to our customers.
Copper is extensively use as an electrical conductor, heat conductor, a building material and as a component in other metal alloys, with all these uses, there is no wonder there is a lack of demand and that can only mean the price of Copper will remain high.
In metallurgy stainless steel, also known as inox steel or inox from French "inoxydable” is defined as a steel alloy. Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel, but it is not stain-proof. It is also called corrosion-resistant steel or CRES when the alloy type and grade are not detailed, particularly in the aviation industry. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required. With are attention to detail and our insight into the market fluctuations we try to yield higher prices for our customer.
