      • Ferrous metals are magnetic and will not rust
      • Examples
        • Low carbon steel
        • Medium carbon steel
        • Cast iron
    • Non-Ferrous
      • A metal that does not contain iron
      • Non- ferrous are not magnetic and do not rust
      • Examples
        • Aluminium
        • Copper

      • Alloys can be sub classified as ferrous alloys and non-ferrous alloys
      • Non -Ferrous alloys
        • Examples
          • Bronze
          • Brass
          • Duralumin
          • Pewter
