I've got 125 lbs. + of Tungsten evaporator filaments used to evaporate our Pd/Ag alloy ( 20/80 % )in vacuum .
The precious metals are infused into the multi strand wire Tungsten filaments .
Several recycler/recovery companies have turned down recovery of this ( " not our specialty " , Ewww Tungsten ! " , " Not enough weight " , etc. " We'll give you 70% of lowest market price . " , " We'll settle at N % of market price at some vague future date .. " and so on ).
I'm looking for a fair price and fast turnaround .
This scrap is used wire filaments . They are multstrand Tungsten wire filaments used to evaporate the Pd/Ag alloy to coat it onto customer parts for our antigalling coatings.
The alloy is evaporated at high temperature and gets infused and fused into the wrapped , twisted Tungsten strands of the coiled wire basket filaments .
Each filament has about 0.05 - 0.15 grams of Pd/Ag alloy on it .
