Non Ferrous Metal Recycling at H&H Metals

H&H Metals accepts a wide variety of scrap metals including ferrous and non-ferrous metals.  Ferrous and non-ferrous metals refer to metals that do and do not contain iron.  Non-ferrous metals do not contain the element iron such as aluminum, brass, and copper.  These metals are generally more lightweight, strong, and exhibit high electric conductivity.   Identifying Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal Non-ferrous metal scrap can often be identified by doing a magnetic test.  Magnets are naturally attracted to iron, so if you hold one up to a piece of metal, and it does not adhere or is not drawn to the metal, you know it is a non-ferrous material.   Non-Ferrous Metal Applications Non-ferrous metals are popular for use in structural and electrical applications.  Non-ferrous metal is both lightweight and strong, which makes it an ideal building material for tall buildings, bridges, automobiles, aircraft, or other structures.  Non-ferrous metal is also popular for electrical purposes.  This is because non-ferrous metals exhibit high melting-points, are non-magnetic, and are resistant to chemical corrosion.   Non-Ferrous Metal Recycling Non-ferrous scrap metal can be recycled and used again for a variety of purposes.  Non-ferrous scrap metal is usually sourced from commercial, manufacturing, and industrial clients.  The [...]
