Flints and Auermetall

The founder of Treibacher Industrie AG, Dr. Carl Auer von Welsbach, invented the flint in 1903. The ferrocerium used for this purpose is sold under the brand name Original Auermetall®,primarily as flints for lighters.

Our customers today include manufacturers of disposable and refillable lighters and gas and welding lighters.

Larger dimensions of ferrocerium are used in survival tools - and also to create special effects in the film industry.
