How To Start Metal (Ferrous & Non-Ferrous) Based Industry
Putting it quite simply, non-ferrous metal are those, which do not have any iron in them. These can be non iron metals or alloys that don’t have a notable amount of iron. The examples can be many. Aluminum, copper, zinc, tin, and nickel are all non-ferrous metals. Alloys such as those containing brass, zinc and copper are also non-ferrous.
Non-ferrous metals and alloys are used in very specific cases. Such as, when the weight requirement is low, more strength is needed, melting points need to be high and the end product needs to be resistant to its environment and chemicals.
Also the non-ferrous metals have some electronic applications which are very distinct. Coppers and its alloys can be used to make rods, sheets, wires, forgings and various castings. Metals like zinc aren’t used alone too often. They can be used to create a pretty good coating though. When dipped in zinc, steel becomes much more durable and likely to survive longer.
When it comes to the production of aluminum, our country ranks 5th. These metal affects our lives on a daily basis. Fortunately, we have no dearth of natural natural resources that can supply us with minerals. Be it gold, bauxite or chlorite.
