Environmental Responsibility

Once consumed in wire drawing, inserts are fully recyclable and can be returned to Paramount Die for processing. Customers return thousands of kilograms of used inserts each year to be graded, sorted, and transformed to as good as new condition.

What is Paramount’s Carbide Reclamation Program?

Paramount’s Carbide Reclamation Program is a chance to send us back your used dies in return for value.

How do I return the carbide to Paramount?

Paramount will send you reclaim kits, which include 4 reclaim containers each. Fill each container with 40 lbs (18 kgs) and simply ship back to Paramount.

**In order to obtain the reclaim kits, please contact your exclusive sales representative and/or sales@paradie.com or call 410-272-4600*

How does the Return Process Work?

Simply extract your once used dies from the holder, place them into the pail provided in the reclaim kit. When the pail is full, screw on the pail lid, place the pail in the provided return box, tape it closed and ship. If necessary, Paramount can make the call to have the box picked up if you do not have FedEx or UPS regular service.


If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Department Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. EST.

Phone: 410-272-4600 or email: sales@paradie.com
