Pure Metals

Pure Metals, also known as native metals, are those which consist of a single element. ICD Alloys & Metals delivers the world’s highest purity metals such as Cobalt, Nickel and Molybdenum from mine to market by leveraging our unparalleled global network.

ICD Alloys & Metals provide these pure metals in many forms, including slab, bloom, powders and ingots. Our melt shops are NADCAP/UKAS approved and uniquely qualified to produce custom forms tailored to a wide array of customer specifications.

Pure Metals are valuable in the electronic and jewelry industries, and traded as commodities. Depending on desired characteristics, they are also often blended with other materials and alloys.

Cobalt

Cobalt

A lustrous, silvery-blue metal. Cobalt is magnetic, used in electroplating, and produces brilliant blue colours in paint, porcelain, glass, pottery and enamels.
Moly

Moly

A shiny, silvery metal. It is used in steel alloys to increase strength, hardness, electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion and wear.
Nickel

Nickel

A matte, silvery metal. Nickel resists corrosion well and is used in plating, batteries, coins and is added to glass to give it a green colour.

Alloys and Revert

ICD Alloys & Metals is an industry leading recycler of certified revert and scrap materials including Nickel and Cobalt. Compared with Pure Metals, the alloys produced from these materials typically have better strength, a smaller carbon footprint, and are more cost effective.

The revert industry is rapidly expanding, and bigger companies are not always structured to take advantage of typically smaller scrap dealers and traders. ICD Alloys & Metals specializes in bridging this gap between the small producers and large consumers of these certified secondary raw materials.

Our expertise in metallurgy allows us to offer not only the finest traditional alloys, but also alloys including materials not normally sought after to create cutting edge unique and cost effective blended solutions.

Nickel

Nickel

A silvery metal. Resisting corrosion even at high temperatures, it is mainly used to make alloys such as stainless steel and is used to plate other metals to protect them from corrosion.
Tungsten

Tungsten

A shiny, silvery-white metal. Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals and is alloyed with other metals to strengthen them making it vital to the metal-working, mining and petroleum industries.
Cobalt

Cobalt

A lustrous, silvery-blue magnetic metal. Alloys of cobalt are used in jet turbines and gas turbine generators, where high-temperature strength is important.

Rare Earth

New uses for Rare Earth Metals are being discovered daily, and ICD Alloys & Metals is at the forefront of their supply. These soft silvery-white metals are known as rare because of their scarcity in pure form. However they are fairly abundant, with core products of ours such as Cerium found in the earth’s crust in amounts equally to copper.

Mined and processed within our network, our high tech customers have come to rely on us for their needs in critical areas. Within the medical industry there are many cutting edge uses including the manufacture of X-ray tubes and the latest cancer drugs. They are also integral for use in superconductors, smart phone screens and catalytic refinery within the gas industry.

New advances in recycling technology have made extraction of Rare Earth Metals from secondary materials more feasible. ICD Alloys & Metals is an industry leading supplier in both recycled and virgin Rare Earth Metals.

Cerium

Cerium

A grey metal. Cerium is used as a catalyst such as in catalytic converters, and also used in flat-screen TVs, low-energy light bulbs and floodlights.
Yttrium

Yttrium

A soft, silvery metal. Yttrium is used in alloys to increase strength, and also used in lasers, white LEDs and superconductors.
