Non-ferrous metals and alloys



Non-ferrous metals and alloys

A Synthesis of  offers a wide range of non-ferrous metal, price of which will surprise you. What is included in the category of nonferrous metals and alloys based on them? Color are all the metals, except iron and its alloys.

The name is not accidental: the vast majority of non-ferrous metals has great color (gold – yellow, aluminium – silver, copper - red, and so on).

Classification

All non-ferrous metals can be classified according to certain criteria. Experts divide them into:

  • heavy metals (these include  Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni);
  • light metals (Al, Mg);
  • small metals (Co, Sb);
  • noble metals (Au, Ag, Pt);
  • refractory metals (W, Mo, Mn);
  • rare metals (Li, Be, Zr);
  • rare earth metals (lanthanides, etc.).

Properties, processing and application

Why you need to buy a nonferrous metal? First of all, because of its high corrosion resistance and durability. These metal properties are provided due to the presence of oxide film on its surface. We should not forget that without the necessary processing and non-ferrous metals can be affected by moisture and oxygen (to a lesser extent than iron-containing alloys).

In what areas use non-ferrous metals in pure form or in alloys? They are in demand both in heavy and light industry, the main purpose – use as dopants in new alloys as well as external surface coating to protect against corrosion.

Using non-ferrous metals and their alloys, it is possible to create new materials that will have improved chemical and physical properties. The alloys based on them are characterized by has acid resistance, fire resistant, antifrictional, high conductivity.

With regard to treatment options, the nonferrous metal is easy cutting, welding, forging, forming, largely due to its plasticity and density. To improve the characteristics and properties of commitally can additionally be subjected to heat treatment.

The most common on the market are alloys of aluminum, copper and titanium (titanium wire, titanium pipe, titanium sheet, titanium rod).

Aluminum and aluminum alloy

The most common among the non-ferrous metal is the aluminum, which maintains its properties over a wide temperature range, different strength, excellent electrical conductivity, resistance to some acids.

All alloys are divided into casting and design. By itself, aluminum is not considered to be particularly durable material, but with the introduction of alloying additives its strength is considerably increased.

Such alloys as duraluminum are widely distributed in the aircraft industry, in the aerospace industry. Moreover, the metal alloys are widely demanded in the food and medical industry, in glass production and other spheres.

Oxygen-free copper

The second most common non-ferrous metals considered to be copper, which has the highest electrical conductivity after silver among all metals. Copper, the price of which in our catalogue is one of the most accessible, is the basis for the most popular alloys, including: bronze, brass, cupronickel.

Mostly copper is used in electrical industries in the manufacture of electric cables of different cross-section. It is also used in construction, instrument making, jewelry industry.

Currently, the range of products of non-ferrous metal is quite wide. No problem, you can purchase rods, sheets, strips, tape, wire. Any nonferrous metal price in our company is very accessible, as is easily seen, after reviewing our catalog of products.
