Non-ferrous metals do not contain any iron and are usually corrosion-resistant and lighter in weight unlike their ferrous counterparts. This type of metals are primarily used in the steel and iron industry, and play a vital role in applications that require malleability, strength, high conductivity, and resistance to corrosion. They are also used in making small electronics because of their non-magnetic feature.
Some common non-ferrous metals, which are commonly found in many devices, include aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel. While aluminum is one of the most recycled materials in the world, other non-ferrous materials are scarce. Listed below are the non-ferrous metals we buy at our facility:
