Non-ferrous metals

Metals or alloys that do not contain iron, or alloys the basic element of which is not iron (for example brass, copper, bronze or zinc) are classified as non-ferrous metals.

They are differentiated in:
high-grade metals

  • precious metals 
  • heavy metals 
  • light metals 
non-ferrous alloys

  • wrought alloys
  • casting alloys 
 Non-ferrous metals are often used in lightweight construction, conductor technology or as beddings for engines.
