Electrolytic Nickel Melt Rounds are produced at our refinery in Long Harbour, Newfoundland. Their consistent chemical composition allows them to be used as a primary feed in a variety of furnace types while their distinctive shape makes them perfect for semi- and fully automated operations. In addition, the solid metallic nature of the rounds helps to minimize breakage and dust. ​

Nickel Discs are produced at the Copper Cliff Nickel Refinery in Sudbury, Ontario, and our Clydach Nickel Refinery in the U.K.

The Nickel Disc is a product of the carbonyl refining process. This process makes one of the purest forms of nickel. The consistent product quality and the distinctive shape (for optimum handle-ability and convey-ability) make nickel discs an industry standard for a wide range of melting applications.​
