Non-ferrous metals are the most expensive and valuable technical material.
Copper. It has a characteristic reddish color, in nature it occurs in the form of sulfur compounds, in oxides and very rarely in pure form. The purest copper - contains 99.99% copper and 0.01% impurities. Due to its high plasticity, copper is well processed by pressure in the cold and hot state. It has good electrical conductivity. Copper is made of conductors of electric current - wires and cables.
Tin. Tin is a very soft metal of silvery-white color with a yellowish tinge. The purest tin - containing 99.999% tin and 0.001% impurities. Tin in its pure form is used for tinning.
Zinc. Zinc is a brittle white metal with a bluish tinge. Zinc is used to coat products (galvanizing) to protect them from atmospheric corrosion.
Lead. This soft metal is bluish-gray color, rapidly fading in the air. Lead is cast and rolled well. From for pumping acids, for the production of batteries, etc. Lead is a very good protection against x-rays.
Aluminum. Aluminum is a soft white metal. It is produced by electrolysis from aluminum ore - bauxite and is well suited for rolling and forging. The features of aluminum are lightness, good electrical conductivity (60% copper conductivity) and high corrosion resistance. Aluminum produces wires, cables, coils (evaporators) in refrigerators, etc. Aluminum oxides are harmless.
Magnesium. Magnesium is the lightest metal of all used in engineering (its specific gravity is 1.74). It is easily ignited and when it burns, a high temperature occurs. The most dangerous in this respect are powder, thin tape, small shavings, etc. The mechanical properties of magnesium are low, so it finds limited application in engineering. In the foundry business of magnesium, high-strength magnesium cast iron is melted. Most often, magnesium is used in the form of alloys with aluminum, zinc.
Titanium. This metal is silvery-white, refractory (melts at 1725 ° C) and light, resistant to air and even in the atmosphere of the sea climate. In terms of prevalence, titanium ranks fourth among the structural metals, second only to aluminum, iron and magnesium. Its strength is twice that of iron, and almost six times greater than that of aluminum. Valuable properties of titanium are its high chemical and corrosion resistance. Titanium has a high plasticity. It is well forged, easily rolled into sheets, ribbons and even in foil. Titanium finds the greatest application in the form of alloys for the manufacture of blades of gas turbines and the production of heat-resistant steels.
