Recycling of tantalum scrap (Ta scrap) and tantalum alloy scrap (Ta Alloy scrap) is very important in the U.S. since there are no high-grade tantalum ores in the U.S. On average about 20% of the tantalum used in the U.S. comes from the recycling of tantalum scrap and tantalum alloy scrap.
Since tantalum scrap and tantalum alloy scrap are some of the top five in high temperature scrap metals and high temperature alloy scraps (2,996 C melting point) it is extremely resistant to air, water and acids. With these anti-corrosion properties tantalum scrap and tantalum alloy scrap is recycled to make electronic components (tantalum capacitors), surgical/medical equipment such as rods and plates to attach to bones and even wire meshes to help repair nerves and muscles. Tantalum scrap and tantalum alloy scrap is one of the few scrap metals that is not mined in the U.S. and depends on the recycling of Monico Alloys for future use.
Today there is a global trade in the buying and selling of high temperature scrap alloys in which Monico Alloys plays an active part. The forecasts are that the volume for both buyers and sellers will continue to increase.
