Materials containing precious metals

This field is one of our main areas of focus.

This business segment is very complex and demanding owing to the diversity of types and the precious metals (silver, gold, palladium, platinum, rhodium etc.) that they contain.

We now have over 30 years of experience in this field and have the necessary knowledge about the quality of materials and the optimum ways of processing them.
In addition to our database with approximately 4,000 analysed materials and a large number of laboratories with which we cooperate closely, it is the experience of our employees in purchasing and storage that enables us to provide trouble-free order processing that is both correct and transparent from the customer's perspective.

We would like to offer you a brief insight into this broad spectrum of materials:

Electronic waste containing precious metals includes (amongst other things) the following:

ALKU gmbh gold

There are many different types of circuit boards containing precious metals. They can originate from computers and servers, but also from measuring devices and mobile phones. It is almost always advisable to process the precious metals contained. Should you be interested or have questions, please do not hesitate to have a word with us.

Alku Rhodium

Here it is frequently a case of connection plugs from the electronics sector. These can be of a variety of types, e.g. with a housing of plastic or metal. However they mostly have gold-plated pins.

Production waste containing precious metals includes (amongst other things) the following:

Kupfer-Streifen

ALKU gmbh Eisen

These often occur as waste material generated in the production of chips and components, but also in all other sectors of the electrical industry. There are silver-plated and gold-plated copper strips. Here it is purposeful to get both the copper and the precious metals extracted by processing.

Kupfer-Stanzbänder

ALKU Kupferstanzbänder

Here also the quantity of product is to be found as waste generated in the manufacture of chips and components, but also in all other areas of the electrical industry. In our example the gold-plating is clearly evident. However concealed precious metals can also be retrieved in the course of our processing work.

ALKU nichteisenhaltig

It is primarily in radio technology that the aluminium housing parts are silver plated. We have the possibility to retrieve the precious metals without losing the aluminium parts in the smelting process (as is otherwise usually the case).

As a point of principle: no matter what area of activity (electronics, military, industry, etc.), no matter what carrier material (copper, brass, aluminium, stainless steel, plastic, glass, etc.) or with which precious metals (silver, gold, palladium, platinum, rhodium, etc.) – we will find the best possible means of recycling it for you!

Was your waste product, containing precious metals, not named here? Talk to us about it!

At no cost to you, we get an independent laboratory to carry out an analysis on a sample made available to us.

Based on the latest stock exchange prices for materials, we reimburse you for the metal contents which the analysis reveals as being present.

No matter which precious metal, no matter which carrier material – we are the right contact partner for you and we find the ideal solution!
