About Platinum

Do Scrap Yards Buy Platinum?

If you have scrap platinum laying around your house or construction site and need to scrap it, find a yard near you with the iScrap App. Platinum can be used in many different applications like catalytic converters, labratory equipment, electrodes and jewelry. Platinum will need to be analyzed by your scrap yard and have no attachments.

Where Can Platinum Be Found?

Platinum found in catalytic converters is hard to get to so be sure to bring whole Catalytic Converter to a scrap yard to get the best prices considering all of the platinum is inside. If you are trying to remove the Platinum from a catalytic converter you will most likely lose money from it because the metal isn’t refined to pure levels. To get the best prices for platinum, make sure it is clean and separated from the rest of your scrap metal. Also call more than one yard near you. The only way to truly know if you have platinum or not is by using an XRF Analyzer, or by sending the material out to be tested by a lab.

How To Determine Platinum Prices

Sometimes different yards will have different platinum pricing. Getting the best Platinum Scrap Prices can be easy with the scrap yard directory found on the iScrap App. If you have a large load of platinum or other metals, the iScrap App can help you schedule a pick up with the container request form. Scrapping your metal is easier than ever with the iScrap App.
