Metals less generally examined for embody aluminum, beryllium, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, nickel, platinum, selenium, silicon, silver, and thallium. Industries within the Primary Metal Manufacturing subsector smelt and/or refine ferrous and nonferrous metals from ore, pig or scrap, using electrometallurgical and different process metallurgical techniques. Establishments in this subsector also manufacture metal alloys and superalloys by introducing different chemical elements to pure metals. Argus offers scrap market costs across the globe, together with regional domestic and export pricing within the US and EU as well as pricing in the most active Asian markets. Ferrous scrap costs are complemented by prices for different electric arc furnace steelmaking raw materials, similar to pig iron, HBI, iron ore, ferro-alloys and other common metal production prices.
Of all the metallic alloys in use at present, the alloys of iron (metal, stainless steel, cast iron, tool metal, alloy steel) make up the most important proportion … Read More
