FERROUS METALS

All metals fall into one of two categories: ferrous or non-ferrous.

The main element of a ferrous metal is iron. A metal is still classified as ferrous even if it has less than 50% iron content, as long as it contains more iron than any other single metal.

Examples of Ferrous metals include:

• Cars
• White goods
• Heavy Melt
• Auto Castings
• Rims
• Unsorted loads receive our shred price per ton.

All metals fall into one of two categories: ferrous or non-ferrous. A metal is considered non-ferrous if it contains less iron than any other metal.

Cast iron, steel, and the various steel alloys are ferrous metals. Meanwhile, tin, zinc, silver, gold and many other metals utilized primarily for metal plating or as alloying elements are considered non-ferrous. Many metals used in the fabrication of parts, such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium, nickel, copper and tin alloys, are also classified as non-ferrous.
