DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FERROUS AND NON-FERROUS METALS
There are several differences between ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal can be distinguished by their properties. First, and perhaps most easily identifiable, ferrous metals contain iron, and non-ferrous metals do not. Second, ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal can be distinguished by its reactivity. Ferrous metals will react to a magnet while non-ferrous metals will not. Non-ferrous metals tend to be more valuable than ferrous metals, so magnets make it easier for recyclers to separate out the more valuable metal. Likewise, ferrous metals are also susceptible to oxidation and react when exposed to moisture and the air, whereas non-ferrous metals will resist rusting.
