    To put it simply, non-ferrous metals are all those metals that do not contain any amount of iron and, therefore, lack two of the most prominent properties of iron – magnetism and corrosion on exposure to oxygen, whether atmospheric or in any other form. In other words, owing to the complete absence of iron, these metals do not attract, nor are they attracted to, magnets. These metals also do not rust like iron does on being exposed to oxygen and moisture. That just means they can be processed or manipulated to be made into building materials that are far more durable than iron due to their resistance to corrosion!List of All Non-ferrous MetalsWhile there are a lot of naturally occurring metals and metal alloys that come under the category of non-ferrous metals, a decent number of metallic compounds have been created by mankind, especially during the last few decades, in a bid to come up with better, stronger and more corrosion resistant alternatives to iron as a building, fortifying and construction materials for buildings, instruments, transportation vessels and vehicles, etc.

    Aluminum Zinc Copper Lead Chromium Lithium Vandium Ruthenium Beryllium Titanium Sodium Magnesium Scandium Potassium Calcium Manganese
    Molybdenum Lanthum Barium Bismuth Cobalt Niobium Nickel Zirconium Gallium Yttrium Rubidium Strontium Cesium Technetium Antimony Osmium
    Rhodium Indium Palladium Silver Gold Cadmium Thallium Hafnium Mercury (but of course!) Tantanum Tin Platinum Tungsten Iridium Rhenium

    Tin is one metal which cannot be specifically put under either ferrous or non- ferrous category. Although it does not have any iron content, it does exhibit paramagnetic (white tin) and diamagnetic (gray tin) properties. Also, it does not rust like iron. In case you’re wondering what made me mention gold in this list, let me tell you that gold in its purest form is NEVER ferrous! Only when ferrous impurities get introduced to the alloy does gold show certain, very slight ferrous properties.

    Alloy metals such as Duralumin (which is composed of a combination of copper and manganese in a 4:1 ratio besides aluminium), brass (which is 35% zinc and 65% copper) and Gliding metal (an alloy of 15% zinc and 85% copper) are some of the most prominent non-ferrous metal examples that are made by combining two or more other non-ferrous base metals. All these alloys share the same two basic non-ferrous qualities with their base metallic components – indifference towards magnets and resistance to corrosion.


    Morley Waste Traders have all the plant and equipment for safe and speedy site clearance and demolition. Our staff are trained to a very high safety certification to make site clearance fast, effective and hassle free.


    Recognised by the DVLA Morley Waste Traders are an authorised tratment facility (ATF). We are only one of a handful in the North who can provide these advanced approved systems. We can take any type of vehicl that has reached the end of its life. A Certificate of Destruction will be issued in line with the current regulations once the vehicle has been through our recycling process.

    Clients can have the peace of mind that your vehicle has been recycled environmentally friendly to its maximum potential.

    Recyclable items removed from vehicles at our depollution rig:

    • Batteries
    • Oil Filters
    • Tyres
    • Waste Oil
    • Brake Fluid
    • Fuel
    • Plastics

    On site analysing with Niton Check.

    Niton was formerly known as Radon.


    Morley Waste Traders buy and sell Ferous Metals.

    Carbon SteelCarbon steel is a ferrous alloy with 0.05 to 2.0% carbon, and is known for its high tensile strength. It can be hardened to heat treatment, and is fairly ductile. Depending on the carbon content, carbon steel has been classified into three broad types. As the carbon content increases, the strength increases, but the ductility reduces. However, carbon steel is susceptible to rusting.► Low-carbon SteelAlso known as mild steel, it is the most commonly used ferrous metal.

    It Contains about 0.05 to 0.30% carbon and the rest is iron.
    It is malleable and ductile, and bends easily.
    It is used in the manufacture of nuts, screws, bolts, girders and other general metal products.

    Medium-carbon SteelIt contains about 0.30 to 0.60% carbon. It is relatively harder and less ductile than low-carbon steel. It is used in the manufacture of car components like axles, gears and crankshafts.

    High-carbon Steel contains 0.60 to 0.99% carbon, and may also contain small amounts of manganese, silicon, and copper. It is the strongest and hardest of all carbon steels. It is used to make blades, springs, and high-strength wires.

    Tool Steel, also known as tool and die steel, it is specifically used for making machine parts, metal cutting tools and dies, as well as molds used for injection molding. It contains 0.7 to 1.5% carbon, as well as molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, and other metals. It is resistant to heat, abrasion, and corrosion, unlike other carbon steels.

    Stainless Steel, also known as corrosion-resistant steel, it is an alloy of iron, nickel, and chromium. The important property of stainless steel is its high resistance to corrosion owing to the presence of chromium. It is tough and resistant to stains, hence, called stainless steel. This steel can be welded, machined and shaped easily depending on the type of steel. It is commonly used in kitchen cutlery and cookware, axles, desks, nails, medical instruments, kitchen draining boards, pipes, etc.

    Cast iron, another commonly used ferrous metal, is made up of 2.1 to 4% carbon, 1 to 3% silicon, and 89 to 94% iron. It is strong but brittle, and has a high compressive strength. It is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. It can be classified into different varieties like gray cast iron, white cast iron, malleable cast iron, and ductile cast iron. Cast iron can be bronze-welded or arc-welded, and hardened or machined. Cast iron is normally used in the manufacture of heavy crushing machinery, machine tool parts, brake drums, car cylinder blocks, machine handles, gear wheels, plumbing material, as well as several household items.

    Wrought iron has a very low carbon content of 0.10 to 0.25%. It is strong and tough, yet fibrous and ductile. It is no longer produced commercially, and has been replaced by mild steel. It was used to make ornamental gates, farm and garden equipment, railings, nails, wires, etc.
