Non-Ferrous Metals: Types, Properties, Applications, Advantages [PDF]

Non-ferrous metals are those which do not contain significant quantity of iron (ferrite) or iron as the base metal. Non-ferrous metals are used because of its properties such as higher conductivity (e.g. copper), low weight (e.g. aluminium) and resistance to corrosion (e.g. zinc). Generally these are more costly than the ferrous metals. Lets dive into […]
