Non-ferrous metals are metals that do not contain iron as their primary component. They are typically lightweight, highly conductive, and resistant to corrosion, making them widely used in a variety of industries, including construction, electronics, and aerospace. Some common types of non-ferrous metals include aluminum, copper, lead, and zinc. Unlike ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals are not magnetic, making them easier to separate from other materials during the recycling process. These metals can be recycled and reused, helping to conserve natural resources and reduce waste. Overall, non-ferrous metals play a crucial role in civilization, and their properties make them essential for many applications that require conductivity, corrosion resistance, and lightweight design.
At Complete Recycling Services, we provide comprehensive recycling services for non-ferrous metals, offering our customers an effective and sustainable solution for managing their metal waste. We are equipped to process a wide range of non-ferrous metals, including:
Aluminum – a lightweight metal that is highly malleable and corrosion-resistant
- Examples: beverage cans, window frames, airplane parts, and car parts
Copper – a reddish-brown metal that is a good conductor of heat and electricity
- Examples: electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, roofing materials, and coins
Brass – an alloy of copper and zinc that is strong, corrosion-resistant, and easy to work with
- Examples: musical instruments, doorknobs, decorative items, and plumbing fittings
Lead – a dense and soft metal that is highly resistant to corrosion and radiation
- Examples: batteries, bullets, radiation shielding, and weights
Zinc – a bluish-white metal that is malleable and corrosion-resistant
- Examples: galvanized steel, die-cast parts, batteries, and roofing materials
Nickel – a hard and silvery-white metal that is resistant to corrosion and high temperatures
- Examples: coins, jewelry, stainless steel, and electrical contacts
Titanium – a lightweight and strong metal that is highly resistant to corrosion and heat
- Examples: aircraft parts, medical implants, sporting equipment, and jewelry.
