Using minor metals from Belmont Metals in Brooklyn, NY can greatly improve your manufacturing process. These metals are often added to master alloys to improve certain desirable properties. For example, electrolytic manganese is often added to steel, aluminum and copper master alloys in order to increase the metal’s ferromagnetic properties. Types of Minor Metals and…
Aside from the other metals listed throughout the site, Belmont welcomes inquiries regarding the following metals in pure form as well as alloying elements:
Used heavily in the Semi-Conductor Industry, Antimony in metallic form is bright, silvery, hard, and brittle; in non-metallic form, it is a grey powder
A high-melting, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, rigid, steel-gray metallic element used as a copper alloy for springs electrical contacts, and nonsparking tools
It is steely-gray, lustrous, hard and brittle metal which takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point
This magnetic, silvery white metal with a faint bluish tinge is used in electroplating and for special alloys with particularly specific applications
A soft silvery metal that is used primarily as an agent that make alloys that melt at low tempratures. Gallium is also in electronics for various applications
A soft, silver-white metal that is used in several industrial applications, including heat-resistant glass and ceramics and high strength-to-weight alloys used in aircraft and batteries.
A light, silvery-white, moderately hard metallic element that is used in structural alloys, pyrotechnics, and flash photography.
A gray-white or silvery brittle element it is mainly known for use in alloying with steel, it is also alloyed with other metals to form highly ferromagnetic materials
A soft, grey, ductile metal, it is used in various superconducting materials as well as various applications in welding, electronics, optics, and jewelry.
A grey crystalline solid or brown amorphous powder, Silicon is used in transistors, rectifiers, solar cells, and for many alloys.
A rare, brittle, silvery-white metal, it is used to alloy stainless steel and lead, in ceramics, and in thermoelectric devices.
A strong, low-density, highly corrosion-resistant, lustrous white metallic element that is used to alloy aircraft metals for low weight, strength, and high temperature stability.
A greyish-white metallic element, it is used as a coating in nuclear and chemical plants, asa deoxidizer in steel, and alloyed with niobium in superconductive magnets.

Minor metals are major players in high-tech innovation Typically the word “minor” refers to things of lesser importance, size or degree. Minor metals, however, are far from inferior—they are major players in a wide range of specialty, high-tech industries and used to create alloys with desirable mechanical properties, including deformability and corrosion resistance. Minor metals…
