Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are a category of metals that contain iron as their main component. They are known for their high strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion, making them widely used in a variety of applications, including construction, manufacturing, and transportation. Some common types of ferrous metals include carbon steel, stainless steel, and alloy steel. These metals can be recycled, helping to reduce waste and conserve natural resources. Overall, ferrous metals play a vital role in society, and their properties make them essential for many applications that require strength, durability, and resistance to wear and tear.
