As the worldwide leader in scrap recycling, TIMET recycles thousands of metric tons of chip, feedstock and bulk weldables each year.
In fact, scrap approximates 30-50% of our raw material input. All of our melting facilities worldwide are equipped to recycle scrap in various forms.
Impressive Cost Savings & Stable Supply
Recycling is a major priority at TIMET because we’ve seen the results – impressive cost savings and long-term stable supply of raw material. With scrap readily available, TIMET has the ability to blend recycled scrap with virgin sponge and alloys to dramatically lower product costs. Our long-term scrap supply agreements with major global producers provide our customers with a stable supply of titanium into the future.
Electron Beam Melting & Vacuum Arc Remelting
Leveraging advanced electron beam (EB) melting and vacuum arc remelting (VAR), we turn titanium scrap into melted products or intermediate feedstock for both our internal mill production processes and our valued customers around the world. TIMET’s toll melting programs provide customers yet another cost-effective outlet for the scrap they generate.
Our customers benefit from exclusive, closed-loop agreements to ensure their raw material scrap flows back into their products to further minimize costs.
