METAL WE BUY
SCRAP METALS WE BUY
Aluminum is resistant to corrosion, low in density, and 100% recyclable. In fact, recycling aluminum saves more than 90% of the energy that would be needed to create a comparable amount of the metal from raw materials. Aluminum is all around us; examples include soda cans, computers, electric power lines, cars, kitchenware, and various other consumer goods.
Most insulated wires (extension cords, telecommunication wire, computer wires, etc.) are composed of aluminum and copper. It makes sense that great care should be taken in ensuring they are recycled. The goal at GEOMET is to separate the metal wires from the rubber and plastic casings to extract the precious metals.
Stainless steel maintains a shiny appearance and is known for being strong and remarkably resistant to corrosion as well as heat. Its ability to last a lifetime with most projects is a big reason why it is widely used for everything from countertops to refrigerators and freezers. It is also used in medical equipment. The demand for stainless steel has doubled in the last 10 years, and the recycling industry has become a vital player in providing a stable supply.
RADIATORS & ELECTRONIC SCRAP
Radiators, such as those used in vehicles, are made almost entirely of metal and are perfect for recycling. Meanwhile, as consumers increasingly buy new cell phones, computers, etc., it has become more important than ever to keep old electronics out of landfills.
Copper has a variety of uses. We see it in electrical wires and power cables because of its electrical conductivity as well as in plumbing pipes and some construction material. Every care is taken to avoid wasting copper, given that it is an essential trace element needed for the healthy development of most plants, animals, and human beings.
Brass is an alloy and is almost entirely made up of copper. You can find brass in almost anything, from doorknobs to mechanical parts, ammunition shell casings, musical instruments, thumbtacks, and electronics.
An alloy is a combination of two or more metals. For example, combining silver and copper makes sterling silver. Every metal has at least one alloy and can be produced to serve a specific purpose.
You can find titanium used mostly in aerospace for both airframes and engines due to its strength (titanium can be stronger than some steels but is more lightweight) and ability to withstand extreme temperatures.
Steel is the #1 recycled material in North America, more than paper, plastic, aluminum, and glass combined. Steel is credited with our ability to produce lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles and safer structures. It is also used for cars, machines, appliances, etc.
