A little bit of knowledge about metal. ‪#‎iron‬ ‪#‎ferrous‬ ‪#‎metal‬

Put in the simplest terms, ferrous metals are those which contain iron, whilst non ferrous metals don’t have any iron content. There are, however, other differences between the two types of metal which have a strong bearing upon the tasks which they are usually called upon to perform. #FerrousMetal #AmsMetal

Ferrous Metals mostly contain Iron. They have small amounts of other metals or elements added, to give the required properties. Ferrous Metals are magnetic and give little resistance to corrosion. #AmsMetal

#Ferrous metals and alloys are iron-based materials that are used in a wide variety of industrial applications. Find out more at

As the most abundant of all commercial #metals, alloys of iron and steel continue to cover a broad range of structural applications. Iron ore is readily available, constituting about 5% of the earth's crust, and is easy to convert to a useful form. Iron is obtained by fusing the ore to drive off oxygen, sulfur, and other impurities. The ore is melted in a furnace in direct contact with the fuel using limestone as a flux.

steel- is a ferrous metal it is used for strength, which is good used in sheet metal. and also used in various things e.g nuts and bolts and hollow steel which is available in many sizes. #AmsMetal

Advantages of ferrous metals - #AmsMetal * High strength to weight ratio compared to Non-metals * Heavier than Aluminum and Titanium Alloys *High quality and durable material * Prone to corrosion by rusting (except stainless steel) * Machine-ability Affected by magnetic field * Recyclable and environmentally friendly These are metals with a higher #carbon composition (0.3-1.7%). The higher carbon content means that carbon steel is harder and stronger, though less ductile. Carbon steel is frequently used in metal cutting tools and machinery, given its strength and resistance to wear and tear. Knives, saws and drill bits are also manufactured using carbon steel.

METAL ALLOY - this is a very effective for the use of high tension cords e.g that #metal cable that will not break so yes very effective the methods used to make this were putting various pieces of metal together to create very strong metal cable used to pull heavy loads. #AmsMetal Ferrous Metal Product List By AMS Metal.
