Titanium Scrap Recycling:
It’s in our DNA
Turn to Globe Metal for all your titanium recycling needs and general information. Titanium processing and recycling uses less energy than sourcing and producing components from raw materials, which saves money and creates less pollution. Recycled titanium is not as valuable as copper, but it is more valuable than stainless steel and other ferrous metals. Globe Metal is one of the only companies in North America that is capable of recycling and handling scrap titanium powder, which makes us the perfect partner for those looking to buy or sell this metal.
What is Titanium?
Titanium is as strong as steel but much less dense. It is therefore important as an alloying agent with many metals including aluminum, molybdenum, and iron. These alloys are mainly used in aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles because of their low density and ability to withstand extreme temperatures. They are also used in golf clubs, laptops, bicycles, and crutches. Titanium offers resistance to corrosion, and it connects well with bones, which make it valuable in surgical applications.
Forms of Titanium that Globe Metal Can Recycle
- Alloyed titanium or unalloyed titanium: including chip, powder, and solid forms.
- Scrap titanium powder: typically generated as a by-product from additive manufacturing.
