Uncommon Metals with Recycle Value

We all know the everyday metals can be recycled like aluminium, copper and stainless steel. But, there are some infrequent metals that also have a recycle value. Read on to find out about these:-

1. Metal Carbide:

 A compound made of carbon and metals like cobalt, tungsten or titanium, metal carbides are extremely heavy and highly resistant to heat. Both carbide and its constituent metals can be recycled as scrap metal. Carbide can be found in drill bits, cobalt can be found in batteries, titanium is present in aircraft parts and tungsten is present in razor blades and ballpoint pens.

2. Nickel:

 A shiny, strong, silver-white metal used in combination with metals like iron, nickel is resistant to corrosion. It is also very strong, malleable and ductile making it ideal to use in alloys. Found in rechargeable batteries, microphone capsules, electric guitar strings and some old coins, this metal has scrap value in all of its different forms and grades.

3. Lead:

This metal is recycled more than it is mined because when dumped in landfills, lead seeps into the groundwater that is used for drinking and can cause lead poisoning which has adverse health effects. Lead is a soft but heavy metal which is corrosion resistant and flexible. It can be found in scientific and medical equipment, construction materials, car batteries and wheel weights.

There are several recycling companies in Dubai like the Lucky Group, which purchase scrap metal.
