Other elements stocked include Ruthenium, Tantalum, Niobium, Hafnium, Zirconium, and others. Our Rhenium and Ruthenium pellets are made at Heraeus in Germany under protocols established by our company.
In the Zirconium field, we commission production of Copper-Zirconium master alloy in the UK, which we supply either as lump or cored wire for continuous casting into bar stock for the creation of fine wires for robotics or EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining).
We encourage customers to enquire for difficult materials and spend time to study the supply chain of by-product elements.
