The demand for stainless steel has doubled in the last decade and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Due to its high strength and resistance, stainless steel is an extremely desirable material for a variety of applications in various industries. Stainless steel is an iron alloy that contains nickel and chromium that adds protective properties against corrosion and rust. Stainless steel is used in everything from construction to household appliances.


Copper is an extremely versatile element due to its extremely ductile nature, ability to conduct heat and electricity and its malleability. We have used copper, perhaps, longer than any other metal. A copper pendant that dates back to 8700 B.C. was found in present-day Iraq that proves copper has been around for a long time. When it comes to the value of copper, it holds nearly the same value of new copper making it an extremely desirable material to be recycled.


Brass isn’t a naturally occurring metal, but instead, it is a general term used for a set of copper-zinc alloys but can also include other metals like lead. Arguably, brass is the most widely used alloys because of its versatility of properties. There are several types of brass and each has a unique set of properties but there are a few properties that they all have in common.


After oxygen and silicon, aluminum is the most abundant element on earth and the most abundant naturally occurring metal. While this metal is easy to find, it is extremely rare to find it in its pure form due to it being highly reactive with oxygen. Almost all manufactured aluminum is used as an alloy and is commonly combined with zinc, copper, silicon, magnesium, and manganese.


o simplify things a little bit, ferrous metals are any metals or alloys that contain iron (Fe on the periodic table). Common metals that fall into this category are mild, carbon and stainless steel, cast iron and wrought iron. The most appealing characteristic of these types of metal is their extremely high tensile strength, which is especially valued in construction.


One of the unique aspects of nickel is that it is foreign to planet Earth, it has been supplied and deposited by meteorites that have struck our planet. Canada and Russia are two of the largest nickel producers due to their large nickel deposits. Nickel is used in over 300,000 products for consumer, industrial, military, transport, aerospace, marine and architectural purposes.


Recycling aluminum alloys has always presented a major economic upside due to its availability, however, aerospace alloys present a more difficult situation when it comes to recycling opportunities. Unlike other recyclable metals, aerospace alloys are developed differently to reduce the number of impurities, which in turn makes them lack toughness and other performance characteristics.


Titanium is an extremely versatile metal that has secured its place in the aerospace industry as well as medical, chemical, military and sporting goods. Titanium, in any form, was rarely used prior to World War II due to the difficult and expensive process of isolation and production.
