The Difference between Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are those that contain iron. They are both magnetic and corrosive due to the high levels of carbon contained in them. Some common examples of the ferrous metals that we frequently buy are:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Wrought Iron
    Ferrous Metals

    Ferrous x Non-Ferrous

  • Cast Iron

Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, and are generally more resistant to corrosion and rusting. They are also usually lighter than ferrous metals, but just as strong. Not only are these types of metal commonly used in aircrafts, but they are also often found in small electrical appliances as they are extremely pliable and conduct electricity better.

Some of the non-ferrous metals we buy include:

  • Copper & Copper Wiring
  • Aluminium
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Electrical Cable

Important to Know…

Ferrous metals are normally a lot more common and easy to come by and can be recycled faster. Ferrous metals, excluding aluminium, are generally a lot rarer and it takes much longer process for these materials to be recycled.
