Tolling Services

Tantalum & Niobium

Telex Metals offers a range of quality metal extraction toll processing services at a competitive price.

Of particular interest to manufacturers serving the electronics industry is the conversion of tantalum and niobium capacitor scrap. We perform extraction of metals such as tantalum, niobium and silver from the scrap. The extracted metals are returned to your company, providing an economical addition to your raw material supply stream.

And with our commitment to producing quality product, you can be sure that the material will meet your exacting specifications. At Telex, our internal quality system mirrors ISO 13485.

To minimize our environmental impact, we operate a zero-discharge facility; all liquid and physical waste is neutralized and shipped to approved treatment facilities for processing. And Telex is OSHA, PADEP and EPA compliant. We also are an EICC certified conflict-free smelter, addressing an issue of great concern in the tantalum-using industries. Recycling tantalum is an ideal component of conflict-free sourcing.
