While not a very common item to find while scrapping, Carbide Scrap is worth a good deal of money when bringing it to a scrap metal yard. On the iScrap App you are able to find a scrap yard in the area that can give you the latest Carbide Scrap Prices.
Carbide is often used in machine shops and other places that may use a great deal of tools. The Carbide Scrap is produced from the tool bits and other equipment pieces. If you have a large amount of carbide or other scrap metal, contact a scrap yard through the iScrap App to request a scrap metal pick up or container drop off service.
The price of Carbide scrap can change often so be sure to contact your scrap yard for further information on the most current scrap metal prices. See more Scrapping Videos here. The price of carbide relies heavily on the prices of the rare metal called Tungsten. Tungsten is worth a lot of money and is a very hard and dense metal, and that is why it is used for carbide drill bits.
Everyone has a drill bit set at home, and many people assume (probably because carbide’s price is so high) that their bits are made from carbide…but most are not. Carbide is not commonly sold at stores like Home Depot or Lowes, they are normally ordered from specialty tooling shops. Almost all tungsten carbide will be very heavy and have a grayish color to it and some may have a brazing on top of it as well.
