Flints and Original Auermetall®

The high affinity of lanthanide metals to oxygen results in the cerium mischmetal having a high tendency to oxidation. This is a unique basis for manufacturing flint.

Treibacher Industrie produziert Zündsteine und Original Auermetall

Adding further alloying elements to the flint and using cutting-edge production technologies gives Original Auermetall® its one-of-a-kind properties:

  • Highly pyrophoric
  • Narrow dimensional tolerance
  • High resistance to corrosion
  • Rounded edges

Different degrees of flint hardness are available on request.


Auermetall® flints are used in a whole host of industries:

  • Disposable / refillable lighters
  • Gas and welding lighters
  • Survival tools
  • Special effects
  • Flint refills
