Our advanced downstream processing facilities allow us to produce custom engineered materials from 13 different rare earths, plus yttrium, with purity levels of up to 6N (99.9999%), and from six other metals (niobium, tantalum, gallium, indium, rhenium, and zirconium) at purity levels of up to 8N (99.999999%).  

Through our Molycorp Magnequench subsidiary, we are a leading global producer of neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnet powders, used to manufacture bonded NdFeB permanent rare earth magnets.  Through our joint venture with Daido Steel and Mitsubishi Corporation, called Intermetallics Japan, we manufacture next-generation, sintered NdFeB permanent rare earth magnets.
