Non-Ferrous Metals

Non-ferrous metals can be incredibly advantageous because of their malleability. Additionally, they do not have any iron content, which gives them a higher resistance to rust and corrosion. This makes them a great fit for gutters, liquid pipes, roofing, and outdoor signs. They are also non-magnetic which is essential for many electronic and wiring applications.

Some examples of non-ferrous metals are as follows: aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, tin, and precious metals like gold and silver.

Aluminum is a lightweight metal that is easily cast, forged, machined, and welded. Due to its lightweight feature, aluminum works great for the manufacturing of aircrafts and food cans. Aluminum does not work well with high-temperature environments.

Copper is regularly used in the electrical industry in the form of wire and other conductors. It is highly ductile, malleable, and has a high conductivity for electricity and heat. Aside from the electrical industry, copper is also used in sheet roofing, cartridge cases, statutes, bearings, and to make brass.

Lead is soft, heavy, and malleable. It has a low melting point and tensile strength. Lead is able to withstand corrosion from moisture and many acids. It is widely used in electrical power cables, batteries, building construction, and soldering.

Zinc is a metal with medium to low strength that has an extremely low melting point. It can be machined easily. However if this process is performed, the metal may need to be heated as to avoid cleavage of crystals. Zinc is commonly used in galvanizing, the process of applying a protective zinc coating to iron or steel to prevent rust.

Another non-ferrous metal is tin. Tin is very soft and malleable with low tensile strength. It is commonly used to coat steel in order to prevent corrosion. Tin is can also be alloyed with copper to produce tin brass and bronze.
