Ferrous metals mostly contain Iron. They have small amounts of other metals or elements added, to give the required properties. Ferrous metals are magnetic and give little resistance to corrosion.
Some examples of the ferrous scrap metals we deal with:
Non-Ferrous Metals do not contain Iron, are not magnetic, and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals. While non-ferrous metals can provide strength, they are primarily used where their differences from ferrous metals can provide an advantage.
In addition to precious metals, like silver and gold, non-ferrous metals include: Aluminum, Brass, Copper, Nickel, Tin, Lead, and Zinc.
Non-ferrous scrap metals we buy include:
