TYPES OF SECONDARY ALUMINIUM INGOTS
Romco produces secondary aluminium in ADC 12, LM 24, UBC, and DIN 226, and more
ADC 12ADC 12 - Romco produces 4 variations. Mainly used for die-casting and perfect for cost-effective production of complex parts in large volumes
LM 24LM 24 - Also used for die-casting to make vacuums, floor polishers and motor frames.
UBC 96% and 97%UBC 96% and 97%- Processed from Used Beverage Cans (UBC), these ingots can be used by the automotive and aerospace industries, and in household goods and appliances.
din 226DIN 226 - Very common and highly versatile. Predominantly used in complex machinery and car parts.
WHAT Are SECONDARY INGOTS ARE MADE OF?
Put simply — renewable waste materials.
Materials used to make our secondary UBC alloys are easily identifiable in the sorting process, however the other alloys are a bit more complex.
Our ADC 12, LM 24 and DIN 226 alloys are made from material scraps collected from manufacturing plants (where the grade is already known) or collected from post-consumer scrap. Materials collected from the latter take more time to sort as the grade is unknown. The smelting process is used to identify the scrap’s grade.
SECONDARY ALUMINIUM INGOTS PROCESS
Scraps are sorted and then processed. This involves de-greasing and de-coating the material surface to remove contaminants from entering the smelting process
Materials are melted and combined with other elements in order to produce alloys of specific grades. Our alloys are made to order, ensuring purposeful production, to maintain energy efficiency and to reduce waste.
Liquid aluminium alloys are then cast into usable ingots and solidified into bars
Each ingot in packaged to order, shipped and repurposed into its secondary use
WHY CHOOSE ROMCO METALS
Increasing recycled materials supply to the point of ‘full global recyclable capacity’ is imperative in reducing (and eliminating) greenhouse gas emissions and the reliance on raw materials mining for our means.
