What are Non-Ferrous Metals?

- Metal Casting Services: Solution to industrial manufacturing needs

Non ferrous metals are those which do not contain significant quantities of iron or iron as base metal. These metals exhibit low strength at high temperatures, generally suffer from hot shortness and have more shrinkage than ferrous metals.
They do have a number of properties which are advantageous in a range of metal casting applications:

Characteristics of Non Ferrous Metals Commonly Used

The following are the characteristics of non ferrous metals and their alloys commonly used in industry :

1.

Copper

The crude form of copper extracted from its ores is approximately 68% pure and is known as Blister copper. Highly pure, 99.9%, copper is obtained by electrolytic refining which is then remelted and casted into suitable shapes. Copper is a corrosion resistant metal of an attractive reddish-brown color.

Properties and Applications of copper

2.

Aluminium

Aluminium is a white metal produced by electrolysis from a clay known as bauxite. Aluminum is lightweight, however, this does not mean that it is low strength, rather it means that it has a low density with high strength. Therefore, it is a good choice for the manufacturing of aircraft and automobiles.

Aluminum is easily cast, forged, machined, and welded. It’s not suitable for high-temperature environments. Aluminum is also used in castings, pistons, railways, cars, and kitchen utensils.

Properties and Applications of Aluminium

3.

Lead

Lead is the heaviest of the common metals. Extracted from its ore known as galena, It is bluish grey in colour and its dull lusture goes very dull on exposure to air.

Properties and Applications of Lead

4.

Tin

A brilliant white metal with a yellowish tinge and a melting point of 240°C.

Properties and Applications of Tin

5.

Zinc

The chief ores of zinc are blende (ZnS) and calamine (ZnCO3). Zinc is a fairly heavy, bluish-white metal. Principally utilized in view of its low cost, corrosion resistance and alloying characteristics, its melting point is 420°C and it boils at 940°C.

Properties and Applications of Zinc

6.

Nickel

Nickel is silvery-white, hard, malleable, and ductile metal. It is a fairly good conductor of heat and electricity. About at least 85% of all nickel production is obtained from sulphide ores.

Properties and Applications of Nickel

7.

Magnesium

Another silvery-white metal, it ignites easily in air and burns with a bright light. Principal Ores of magnesium are magnesite, carnallite and dolomite. Magnesium is extracted by electrolytic processes.

Properties and Applications of Magnesium
