Home Businesses Advanced Materials Group About RESTART INTRODUCING THE RESTART PROGRAM FROM MATERION In managing your specialty metals, achieving a lower cost of ownership is a desirable goal. Materion Advanced Materials Group's new RESTARTTM program does just that - by employing novel recycling technologies. RESTARTTM stands for “Rare Element Supply Tactics & Resource Transformations.” It seeks to capture end-of-life, high purity metals for reuse while maintaining their purity and quality. In addition, it preserves the industry’s limited resources and reduces supply constraints. KEY ADVANTAGES OF RESTARTTM Customers who participate in Materion’s RESTART™ obtain a number of advantages. The three core goals of the program are: REWARD* – lower cost of ownership for our customers RECYCLE – Reuse of valuable raw materials REPLENISH – Preservation of high purity materials within the vacuum deposition industry. *for qualified customers. In addition, a company that follows this approach demonstrates their public commitment to environmentally responsible practices. RAW MATERIAL COSTS RISING There are a number of components that contribute to the escalation of raw material prices for specialty metals. Among them are: government regulations, increased demand for limited material supply, and poor metals cycle management. RESTARTTM can mitigate the impact of some of these factors by reusing/recycling specialty materials within the industry. For example, if spent sputtering targets are sold off to adjacent industries, the precious metal resources are “lost” to our industry. RESTARTTM maintains the supply and preserves our industry’s precious resources!
