Can't find a place for that nasty old carbide scrap? Instead of pitching it, why not make some money on all of it? When you bring it to Hemly, we'll recycle it into useful insert material and you'll get a nice payday. What's not to like about our buyback program?

Why use our scrap buyback program?

• Reduces the environmental impact of tungsten carbide scrap

• Collects material for the production of new tungsten carbide products, including inserts

• Extends the world’s limited reserves of tungsten, an expensive, valuable material that is critical to many manufacturing processes. Did you know that more than 90 percent of the world’s tungsten supply lies outside the United States?

• Enables you, our customers, to recoup some of the expense of carbide inserts
