This composition is utilized globally for its exceptional performance in applications demanding extreme temperatures, maintaining its integrity up to 2300 F (1260 C). It is commonly employed in manufacturing parts for heat-treating furnaces, tubes for petrochemical and refining furnaces, as well as components for cement kilns, due to its unparalleled durability and thermal resistance.



Commonly used as a semiconductor and is a silvery white semi-metal.

Types of Germanium:

  • Scrap Lenses
  • Scrap Wafers
  • Scrap uncoated Germanium
  • Optical Lenses
  • Target Scrap
  • Sludge
  • Grinding
  • Powders
  • Residues
  • Solids

Commonly used as a semiconductor and is a silvery white semi-metal. This will not be purchased until we have used an XRF to verify the composition of the materials.

Germanium looks very similar to silicon and needs to be analyzed before purchasing is made.


Carbide Solids

Made from the primary metal, tungsten, carbide is one of the strongest metals in the machining world. Carbide is made up of mostly tungsten but could have other metals inside it as well. Often to get the pure price of the carbide the XRF analyzer  will have to see the percentage of tungsten to verify pricing. Carbide is generally used in the machining world but there are a few household types of carbide like wedding rings that you may be able to find.
