When it comes to ferrous and non-ferrous metals, Bearing Centre stocks everything that you will require from leading and reliable
suppliers. The difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals is what determines their applications. The primary difference between the two is that
ferrous metals contain iron, and non-ferrous metals don’t.
These are the ferrous metals that we stock from our reputable suppliers:
- Mild steel – used for engineering purposes and for general use. It has a carbon content of 0.1 to 0.3% and an iron content of 99.7 to 99.9%
- Carbon steel – used to make drill bits and other cutting tools. It has a carbon content of 0.6 to 1.4% and iron content of 98.6 to 99.4%
- Stainless steel – has multiple uses due to it not staining and being corrosion resistant, but is specifically used for cutlery and surgical instruments.
Stainless steel is composed of iron, nickel and chromium
- Cast iron – very strong and brittle metal used for engine blocks and manhole covers. Composed of carbon content of 2 to 6% and iron at 94 to 98%
- Wrought iron – used to make decorative items such as ornamental gates and fences. Composed almost 100% of iron
These are the non-ferrous metals that we stock from our reputable suppliers:
- Aluminium – very lightweight, used in the manufacture of aircrafts, window frames and kitchenware. An alloy of aluminium, copper and manganese
- Copper – a naturally occurring metal that conducts heat well which is used for electricity wiring, as well as tubing and piping
- Brass – used for ornamental purposes and within electrical fittings. Made from a combination of copper and zinc, usually in the proportions of 65%
to 35% respectively
- Silver – used for making jewellery and for decorative use, but also to solder metals together. It’s a natural occurring metal that can be mixed with
copper to make sterling silver
- Lead – used in roofing, batteries and piping. It’s a naturally occurring metal that is heavy and yet soft too
