Why do we recycle Stainless Steel Scrap?

Stainless steel is a very common item used in all areas of domestic and industrial life. As such, there is a high turnover for post-consumed material. Since the production of new stainless steel incorporates a varying percentage of scrap during its production, it is imperative to connect the supply of this stainless scrap back to the end-users who will use it to make new products once again. This ensures less stress and dependence upon our global supply system to mine and source raw materials for new production. For Stainless Steel Scrap Buyers Marine industry, Oil and Gas Industry, Offshore platforms, Chemical processing industries, Aerospace Industries are the major sources of stainless steel scrap.


The typical grades we offer for Stainless Steel scrap recycling:

Nickel Alloys

  • SS301
  • SS304
  • SS309
  • SS310
  • SS316
  • SS321
  • SS330
  • Duplex 2304, 2205, 2507

300 series stainless steel is largely made up of Nickel, Chrome, Molybdenum, and Iron. Being resistant to water corrosion you often find these grades used in domestic appliances, construction, food & beverage industries, and other common industrial uses such as pulp and paper manufacturing.

Stainless Steel’s ability to be resistant to chemical and gas corrosion allows it to be used quite commonly within the oil and gas industry, in areas usually with high pressure and heat fluctuations.

Chrome Alloys

  • SS 409
  • SS 410
  • SS 430

400 series stainless steel is primarily an iron and chrome-based alloy. Commonly used in automobile manufacturing and industrial construction for its ability to withstand atmospheric corrosion.
