Ferrous Metals

Carbon steel, wrought iron and Stainless steel are examples of ferrous metals. They are both alloys (mixture of different metals) that contain a fair amount of iron and therefore known as Ferrous metals.

Non-Ferrous Metals

These are metals that contain no iron but also include some alloys that contain appreciably very small amounts of iron.

Non-Ferrous metals are often specified for specific applications which may require, non magnetic properties, higher melting points or anti corrosive properties.

  • Aluminum
  • Beryllium
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Magnesium
