Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals

Would you like to know more about the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals?
Many people who are not involved in the metal industry or something similar can easily get these terms mixed up, and it could be helpful for you to know more.

Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are metals like shearing steel and cast iron, which are often used in large-scale building and construction projects due to their strength and durability. Examples are railways and industrial containers.

These metals have one major drawback, in that they react with the atmosphere and other elements and are therefore vulnerable to rusting.

This is one tell-tale sign that the material is a Ferrous metal. Ferrous metals are in extremely high demand due to their wide usage in the areas of manufacture and construction and therefore command a high price.

Non-Ferrous Metals

Many types of metals are non-ferrous, these including materials such as aluminium, copper, brass and stainless steel, not to mention precious metals like silver and gold.

Two of the major differences from ferrous metals are that non-ferrous metals are much lighter and more malleable. This means that they are very useful in industries where the weight of metal plays a big role.

Non-ferrous metals do not contain any iron, something that means they have a stronger resistance to issues like corrosion, something that makes them easier to recycle.

These metals can be found in piping, housing materials, roofing, plus many more. And as they do not contain any magnetic material, they can also be used in electrical household appliances and many smaller electronic devices.
