Other non-ferrous metals Copper Tin Lead Zinc Titanium Lithium Nickel Chromium
Copper Moderate strength in the pure state Malleable and ductile Very good electrical and thermal conductor Good corrosion resistance Alloys with Zinc to give brass Alloys with Tin and others to make bronze
Zinc No structural engineering uses in pure state Used as sacrificial anodes to protect steel. Used as an alloy with copper to produce brass Used to corrosion coat steel by: –Galvanising or –Plating
Nickel Corrosion resistant – forms strong oxide layer. Brittle in the pure state Used in stainless steels Alloyed with copper to produce cupronickels for coinage and Monel for corrosion-resistant valve parts. Used in Nimonic and superalloys for aerospace engine parts.
