NON-FERROUS METALS

non-ferrousNon-ferrous metals are metals that do not contain iron, for example copper, brass, aluminum, and titanium. Alloys are also non-ferrous metals, for example brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Non-ferrous metals may be used for applications requiring greater strength, less weight, higher melting points, nonmagnetic properties, or resistance to chemical or atmospheric corrosion. Alloys are also used in electronic applications. The non-ferrous metals Roswell Recycling Center purchases include:
