Types of scrap metal Adelaide. Scrap metal yard Adelaide

Updated: Jul 16, 2023

There is a wide variety of scrap metal types which can be categorized into two main groups: ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

  1. Ferrous metals: These contain iron and are magnetic in nature. Some common ferrous metals are:

a. Iron (cast iron, wrought iron, etc.) b. Steel (carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, etc.)

  1. Non-ferrous metals: These do not contain significant amounts of iron and are generally non-magnetic. Common non-ferrous metals include:

a. Aluminum (cans, window frames, siding, etc.) b. Copper (wiring, tubing, piping, roofing, etc.) c. Brass (fittings, ornaments, door handles, etc.) d. Bronze (sculptures, decorative items, bearings, etc.) e. Lead (batteries, roofing, weights, etc.) f. Zinc (die-castings, gutters, roofing, etc.) g. Tin (cans, solder, etc.) h. Nickel (stainless steel, batteries, coins, etc.)

The value, recycling process, and use of these metals can vary greatly, but this categorization helps to simplify the understanding of various scrap metal types.
