  • Properties and Uses of Non-Ferrous metals
    • Aluminium (pure)
      • Good strength to weight ratio, light, soft, ductile, gd conductor of h and e
      • Melting point = 660 C
      • Kitchen equipment, window frames, general cast components
    • Tin (pure)
      • Soft, weak, malleable, ductile and resistant to corrosion
      • Melting point = 230 C
      • Ususally used for coating steel to form tin-plate, soft solder
    • Copper (pure)
      • Melting point = 1080 C
      • Water pipes, electrical wire, decorative goods
      • Malleable, ductile, gd conductor of h and e, resistant to corrosion
    • Brass (alloy)
      • Resistant to corrosion, fairly hard, gd conductor of h and e
      • Ornaments, cast items such as water taps
      • Melting point = 900-1000 C
