The final settlement from Scientific Metals was $3235.09 more than the offer Dr. Wong received after he initially sent in his scrap to another refinery.
The Other Guys: $9644.50
Scientific Metals: $12,879.59
In March 2018, Dr. Wong sent in 700 grams of scrap to a refining company for processing and melting. After the company’s refining fees and 5% promotion, his final settlement offer was $9,644.50. At first, Dr. Wong believed this to be a very reasonable offer. But after a closer look at the report, something didn’t add up.
Based upon the refiner’s own breakdown of Dr. Wong’s metal percentages and weight, he noticed that his final settlement offer should have been around $12,500.00. After speaking with the refining company, Wong was informed that there was an additional 30% deduction that was non-transparently figured into the numbers.
After declining this offer and then sending his bar to Scientific Metals (who has no hidden fees) Dr. Wong’s final settlement for the same bar was $12,879.59.

We helped Dr. Kulick make 32% more money on his scrap with us after he discovered huge additional fees and charges from his initial refiner.
The Other Guys: $2700
Scientific Metals: $3554
Dr. Kulick contacted Scientific Metals after he submitted his scrap collection to a dental supply rep whose company was partners with a refiner. When his settlement offer of $2700 seemed low, he was informed of the multiple charges and deductions that were added to the refining fees.
After Dr. Kulick declined this initial offer and received his material back in the form of an ingot (or bar), he then asked a colleague to refer him to a different refiner—which turned out to be Scientific Metals.
Dr. Kulick sent us his bar for assay and settlement and received $3554.00…32% more for the same bar.
