Over the past decade the UAE, in particular Dubai has witnessed a strong growth in the construction sector ranging from the expansion of the road, bridge and subway infrastructures to the erection of new hotels as a response to the increasing demand of tourism and the development of attractive real estates to attract foreign investors. It was in light of the favorable market condition that IROMETAL was established in 2004 in Dubai. With over 10 years of experience and its successful track record in the metallurgical sector, the management team of IROMETAL made the decision to enter steel and steel-related raw materials and services market.
It is with great joy that today we are celebrating 20 years of success with our customers across the globe and in particular in the Middle East. This success we also share with our trusted Business Partners whose support has enabled us to provide products and services of the highest quality in the shortest possible time in the metallurgical market.

Our agriculture portfolio range from grain (barely, corn and wheat) to oilseeds (soybeans and raps) to cotton. Having local presence in the supplying countries allows us to source directly from farmers and cooperatives. In many instances we have joint ventures with these producers which gives us an edge when negotiating prices. Moreover, with access to storage facilities at ports supply disruptions are avoided.
FERTILIZER PRODUCTS Fertilizers are indispensable in the agricultural industry. For the plants to grow adequately the soil must be rich in essential elements. Fertilizers provide the nutrients needed for growth of your corps. We can supply nitrogen, potash, sulphate and phosphate based fertilizers.

Mainly used in the production of steel we can supply both lumps and fines sourced directly from mines from different corners of the world.
Fines and stockpiles that were regarded as waste in the past are now used in the production of pellets, an attractive option for blast furnace operated steel mills.
In terms of volume, steel and iron ore are the most traded metals as they are used in almost every real estate and infrastructural development and can be regarded as the backbone of every construction project.
Steel billets are square shaped long metals of 36 square inches and are further processed to mainly two types of long products: Reinforcing Bar and Wire Rod.
Blooms like billets are square shaped with a cross section above 36 square inches. Blooms are further processed to long products such as profiles, beams, rails and columns.
Steel slabs are rectangular shaped wide metals that are used in the manufacturing of flat products such as coils, sheets and plates.
As the name suggests Rebars are used for the purpose of reinforcement. In construction Rebars help to reinforce concrete through their deformed surface.
Merchant bars are used in the fabrication of a wide range of engineering products. They include flat, square and round bars, equal and unequal angles, channels and similar products.
Structural sections take the shape of I, H or U and are used in complex structures such as high-rises and bridges structural.
Wire rod has many applications. Depending on its specifications applications vary. Low carbon wire rod is used for mesh and fences while high carbon rod is used for tyre and fasteners.
This product range is divided into categories: Seamless tube and welded tube. Seamless tube finds use in boiler, oil and gas industries and automotive transmission component. Welded tubes are generally used in engineering applications, power generation plants, oil refineries, automotive sector and furniture plants
HRC and HRS are applied in areas such as cars, electrical appliances, construction materials, containers, and steel pipes. They can be further processed to CRC and coated coils.
Cold rolled steel finds application in areas where superior forming, painting and welding is needed. These areas include car manufacturing, electrical components and appliances, office equipment or any project where tolerance, straightness and surface finishing are crucial to the outcome.
HDG combines the strength and formability of steel with a uniform zinc coating that provides corrosion protection. It is mainly applied in areas where durability and shiny surface is of major concern – such as lighting fixtures, kitchen appliances, roofing, automotive and many more.
Displaying same qualities as HRS hot rolled plate have higher thickness and are used in the construction industry and shipbuilding.
Tin plate is mainly used is the production of food and drink can. The tin layer helps to preserve the food whilst quality is not compromised. Packaging of paints and oils are other application areas.
Coated steel is protected from corrosion and finds application in automotive industry and outer frame and roof of buildings.
Copper ore undergoes serval stages in its production process...
Copper ore undergoes serval stages in its production process. We directly work with miners and manufacturers supplying us with all products alongside the production chain.
Copper ore is extracted from open pits or mines. After big chunks of the ore are broken down into small pieces the beneficiation takes places. At this stage the ore is processed into copper concentrate containing 20-30% copper. Iron ore and sulfur constitute the other two major components.
In order to remove iron ore and sulfur the copper concentrate is fed into a furnace. Preheated oxygen-rich air is and a material called flux is added to the furnace. The flux and the oxygen bind the iron ore and the sulfur respectively. This results in a 99% pure copper blister.
The blister is further process in a furnace where more impurities are oxidized. The 99.5% molten copper is cast into molds that form anodes.
The anode is placed in a tank containing acidic solution and a copper cathode sheet at its opposite end. Through an electrical current the anode is dissolved over time and the copper deposited on the cathode. The cathode is of a very high purity.
For the purpose of transportation and processing copper cathodes may be cast into ingot or billet forms. Alternatively ingots can be won from copper scrap. Ingots cast this way have a much lower concentration of 97%-99%.
Copper rods are made of cathodes or high purity ingots and are used as feed stock for wire and cables.
In the production of Aluminum as it is used in the industries, Bauxite ore needs to be first extracted from the ground. In a next step Bauxite is further processed to Alumina which in turn feeds into the production of pure Aluminium. We can supply all the range of products and commodities across the aluminium production chain –starting from Bauxite to high purity aluminium ingots.

producers. In many instances end-buyers are looking for a stable and continuous supply. Our close collaboration with petrochemical majors allows us to negotiate long-term off-take agreements and meet the demands of our customers.
Consisting of a mix of propane and butane gas LPG provides a greener alternative to many other energy sources. It finds use in the industry as well as areas where bottled gas is popular such as Latin America or Africa.
Naphtha is a flammable liquid that finds its main use in the production gasoline and olefins.
Methanol is a very versatile product that is used both in the energy and petrochemical field. It is the primarily feedstock for the production of MTBE, acetic acid formaldehyde and industrial solvents. It is also used in biodiesel and gasoline blending.
Fuel oil is the heaviest form of commercial fuel. It is used for power generation in big ships or for heat generation in boilers.
Bitumen is a semi-solid oil product. Its main application is in the construction industry – in roofing of buildings and paving of roads.
Natural bitumen is a solid oil product. Unlike bitumen it is not produced in refineries but is simply extracted from the earth surface in form of solid ore. It finds major application in optimizing the qualities asphalt and in the production of drilling mud. The more pure form of natural bitumen is used in the cosmetic industry.
Metallurgical Coke is almost entirely used in the production of steel. It is an excellent source of high quality carbon. Mixed in the furnace with limestone and iron ore, met coke is a feedstock in steel making
Thermal Coal is the world’s most abundant fossil fuel. It is used for the generation of energy.
Coking Coal is richer in carbon than thermal coal and is used as feed stock for producing met coke which in turn is used in the production of steel.
