Generally more expensive than ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals are used because of desirable properties such as low weight, higher conductivity, non-magnetic property or resistance to corrosion
Copper is a soft, malleable and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a reddish-orange color.
We can supply you with:
- Copper Shiny Bright.
- Copper 1A Solids.
- Copper Braizery.
- Copper Tins.
Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. It is a substitutional alloy.
We can supply you with brass shavings.
Aluminium is a silvery-white, soft, nonmagnetic, ductile metal. Aluminium is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon), and the most abundant metal, in the Earth's crust.
Aluminium is the most widely used non-ferrous metal. Aluminium is almost always alloyed, which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered. For example, the common aluminium foils and beverage cans are alloys of 92% to 99% aluminium.The main alloying agents are copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and silicon (e.g., duralumin) and the levels of these other metals are in the range of a few percent by weight.
We can supply you with:
- Aluminium cast.
- Aluminium cable.
- Aluminium cans.
Lead is a soft, malleable and heavy post-transition metal. Freshly cut, solid lead has a bluish-white color that soon tarnishes to a dull grayish color when exposed to air; the liquid metal has shiny chrome-silver luster
Lead is used in applications where its low melting point, ductility and high density are advantageous. In either pure form or alloyed with tin, or antimony, lead is the traditional material for bullets and shot in firearms use. The low melting point makes casting of lead easy, and therefore small arms ammunition and shotgun pellets can be cast with minimal technical equipment. It is also inexpensive and denser than other common metals
We can supply you with clean lead pellets
These metals are primarily used for their tensile strength and durability, especially mild steel which helps hold up the tallest skyscrapers and the longest bridges in the world.
Heavy Steel is one of the most common forms of wrought iron and steel scrap, heavy melting steel is recyclable steel derived from a variety of sources—for example, railroad wheels, ship plates, construction scrap, auto and truck bodies, and so on—and cut into individual pieces not greater than 60 x 24 inches, sized optimally for charging to a furnace.
We can supply you with heavy steel bars.
Light Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio, but its quality is more consistent. This is of particular importance in roof construction where warping, rotting, splitting and cracking or any pests associated with timber are significant factors.
We can supply you with light steel frames and sheets.
Stainless Steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does. However, it is not fully stain-proof in low-oxygen, high-salinity, or poor air-circulation environments. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required.
