Non-ferrous metals
Non-ferrous metals are metals that do not contain iron. for example Aluminum, bronze, lead, brass, copper and tin

Aluminum
it has a high strength weight and conducts heat and electricity.It can be polished well and dose not rot, it can be difficult to join together.
3 of 19
Brass
its expensive can resist corrosion and can polish well.
4 of 19
Copper
A good conductor of heat and electricity, it can be easily joned and polished well. It can also be expencive.
