These products can be custom-packaged as per your varying industry needs and corporate specifications. All products undergo our very stringent industry testing and quality control procedures and processes. All sub-standard materials are rejected outright, as we do not compromise on ensuring the high quality of all our products.

Iron Ore

Iron ore is the core component of steel, which is used in many forms of modern construction. Steel can be recycled – on average it takes 17 years for a piece of steel to be reused – so demand is proportionately much higher in countries which are industrializing. Today, China produces half of the world’s steel, some two million tonnes per day. It imports 80 million tonnes of iron ore a month and accounts for two thirds of seaborne demand.

Copper Cathode

Copper cathode is used in the production of semi-finished products in the form of wrought copper ingots and copper rods for the production of various steel. Copper cathode - a raw material for copper wire, perhaps, the main area of application. Due to the low resistivity and high thermal conductivity of copper cathode used in the production of wires and power cables, elements of transformers and electric motors, in the radiators and air conditioners, computer fans, as well as in the production of a plurality of alloys:

  • 1. The most common alloy of copper - bronze;
  • 2. melhior has up to 55% of the copper in its composition (from it produce the dishes, decorations, coins);
  • 3. neyzilber (nickel, copper, zinc and the cathode) is used for the manufacture of a medical instrument and artistic products;
  • 4. medno-nickel alloys are highly resistant to degradation by moisture, they are used for the manufacture of products for the marine industry;
  • 5. brass (up to 50% zinc) are widely used in machinery, manufacture of household goods and the chemical industry. From it makes cartridge cases, pipes, pipes for radiators of motor vehicles, commemorative medals, processing equipment, and more.

    Alumina Ore

    Alumina is produced from bauxite through a process called the Bayer process. The Bayer process is carried out in four steps. First, after the bauxite is crushed, washed and dried, it is dissolved with caustic soda at high temperatures. Next, the mixture is filtered to remove the impurities, called “red mud,” which is properly discarded. The remaining alumina solution is transferred to tall tanks called precipitators. In the precipitator tank, the hot solution starts to cool and aluminum hydroxide seeds, very small particles, are added. The aluminum hydroxide seeds stimulate the precipitation of solid aluminum hydroxide crystals. The aluminum hydroxide settles at the bottom of the tank and is removed. Finally, the aluminum hydroxide is washed of any remaining caustic soda and heated to remove excess water. After this process, alumina (aluminum oxide) emerges as a fine white powder. It looks much like sugar used in baking, but is hard enough to scratch a pane of glass.
