We Take It A Step Further

  • Scepter frequently consults with customers on dross handling practices and techniques to maximize their value

  • Employees of companies of the Scepter Group are thoroughly trained to leverage our proprietary technology and process controls to ensure that the results are as expected

Chemistry Integrity

The alloy chemistry of aluminum has value. Our ability to maintain the alloy integrity of the material we receive and process is important to reduce the possibility of contamination and alloy degradation.

Further we have the capability to blend various alloys of scrap to make alloys our customers require. This allows customers to send us a variety of materials of different chemical alloys in order to make a uniform grade of aluminum. This requires, experience, systems and furnace capabilities that many of our competitors do not have.
