Sell Your Scrap Metal: We Buy Ferrous Metals

Pile of structural steelFerrous metals are those that contain iron. One main advantage of iron is that it is dense and can be easily combined with carbon, or other elements, to improve strength. Iron is also beneficial in respect to its present abundance and ability to be easily refined. Other trace amounts of metals may also be present in ferrous metals. By alloying iron with varying ratios of other elements, factors like corrosion can be mitigated. While destructive corrosive forces can be curved through alloying, ferrous metals are susceptible to rust due to their iron-rich composition. Ferrous metals are also distinct in respect to being magnetic.
