  1. Ferrous Metals
    • contain iron
    • most are magnetic
  2. Stainless Steel
    • ferrous metal
    • tough hard metal
    • corrosion resistant
    • wears well and is difficult to cut
    • used for cutlery, sinks and pans
  3. Mild Steel
    • ferrous metal
    • high tensile srength
    • poor resistance to corrosion
    • easily melded
    • used in car bodies, nuts and bolts
  4. High Carbon Steel
    • ferrous metal
    • very hard
    • quite brittle
    • poor resistance to corrosion
    • used for files/ chisels/ tool blades/ knives
  5. Non Ferrous Metal
    • do not contain iron
    • not magenetic
    • can be pure metals or alloys
  6. Copper
    • non ferrous metal
    • tough, ductile and malleable
    • very good conductor
    • corrosion resistant and solders well
    • used for wiring, circuit boards
  7. Aluminium
    • good strength to weight ratio
    • malleable and ductile
    • resists corrosion
    • conducts heat and electricity well
    • used for drink cans, pans, kitchen foil
  8. Alloys
    • a mixture of different metals
    • each metal provides different properties to create a unique metal
  9. Bronze
    • alloy
    • mixture of copper and tin
    • tough and strong
    • wears very well
    • used for coins
  10. Brass
    • alloy
    • mixture of copper and zinc
    • hard and rigid metal
    • can be soldered
    • used for instruments
  11. Fixings
    Gas Welding: oxyacetylene is used to create a very hot flame which welds metal.
