Precious Metal Reclaim Service

In today's competitive business environment, advanced materials recycling becomes more important in the supply chain. Stanford Advanced Materials offers a reclamation service on our rare-earth and precious metals for environmental or economic purposes. We reclaim these materials in the spent or partially used forms from the bonding, un-bonding, sputtering and other processes. Most elements herein can be reclaimed into finished metallic or compound form.

Our Advantages for Precious Metal Recycling

We combine precious metal refining and recycling with other products and services to form customized, comprehensive solutions with the lowest possible cost of ownership. Our sputtering target and chamber recycling services provide key business advantages:


High efficiency precious metal refining technology produce the highest metal returns


Fast settlement times mean shorter turn-around and improved cash flow


Price risk management program insulates against volatile precious metals markets


We reclaim at our facilities in the USA. After refining of the spent material we will either issue a credit against a new order. This credit can be used directly towards the purchase price of a replacement target or services offered by Standford Advanced Materials. Please ask for details to see if your materials qualify for our reclaim program. Alternatively, give us a call or email us at target@samaterials.com.
