Non-ferrous metals


Competitive prices for your non-ferrous metals

Types of non-ferrous scrap metals you can sell to us include:

  • Aluminium
    Aluminium is a light, silvery-grey metal. It is a chemical element with the symbol Al and atomic number 13.
    Aluminium was first discovered in 1825, and approximately 60 years later, the mass production of this soft, non-magnetic and ductile metal led to its extensive use in industry and everyday life (e.g. transportation, engineering, construction and packaging). In 1954, aluminium became the most produced non-ferrous metal, surpassing copper.
  • Armoured cable
  • Brass
    Brass is a yellow alloy of copper and zinc. Its mechanical, electrical and chemical properties can be varied by altering the alloy’s proportions of copper and zinc. Brass has a low melting point, is highly workable and exhibits excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. It is a great material for items that require corrosion resistance and low friction, such as bushes, electrical plugs and sockets, gears, hinges, hose couplings, locks, valves and zips.
  • Bronze
    Bronze is a yellowish-brown alloy. Traditionally, it was made up of copper and tin but some modern bronzes contain no tin at all (using other metals such as aluminium, manganese, nickel or zinc, or even non-metals). Besides its traditional use in weapons and tools, bronze has also been a popular metal for coinage. In fact, most ‘copper’ coins are actually bronze.
  • Bright wire
  • Catalytic converters
  • Copper (cable coils, heavy copper, mixed copper etc.)
    Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. It is a reddish, malleable and extremely ductile metal. It is not particularly strong or hard but its thermal and electrical conductivity properties are excellent. Most of the copper produced today is used by the electrical industries to make wires, cables and electronics; the rest is combined with other metals to form alloys. Apart from gold, copper is the only other metal on the period table that isn’t naturally silver-coloured or grey.
  • Household cable
  • Lead (incl. piping and lead acid batteries)
    Lead is a heavy, bluish-grey metal. It is a chemical element with the symbol Pb and atomic number 82.
    It is quite dense yet has a relatively low melting point. Furthermore, it is ductile, not particularly prone to oxidation and relatively inexpensive. All these properties make it a great material for use in ammunition, batteries, plumbing, radiation shielding and roofing.
