What is superalloy?

Superalloys are a high strength alloy known for their extremely high resistance to heat, as well as high resistance to corrosion and oxidation. They are commonly used in jet and rocket engines where they are required to retain their strength in temperatures in excess of 1200°C degrees. Chemical processing, nuclear, petrochemical, and marine industries also use these special alloys, which are primarily based on noble and pure metals such as Nickel, Cobalt, Titanium, Molybdenum, and Tungsten.

If you’re looking to sell your superalloy scrap, our expert team at King Scrap Metal can help you get the best value for your metal. We offer competitive rates on your scrap, giving you the best titanium or nickel scrap price for your leftover superalloys. If you have nickel scrap, we also recycle this separately and can offer you great nickel scrap prices.

Superalloy scrap can be found in the following items:

  • Turbine blades
  • Jet or rocket engines
  • Submarines
  • Nuclear reactors
