This group includes the manufacture of a variety of metal products, such as cans and buckets; nails, bolts and nuts; metal household articles; metal fixtures; ships propellers and anchors; assembled railway track fixtures etc. for a variety of household and industrial uses.
Aluminium has become an integral part of our everyday life; you may even be reading this on a device with an aluminium body. Tablet PCs, flat screen TVs, sporting equipment, furniture, mirrors and coffee machines and many other products and gadgets we use in our everyday lives contain aluminium.
Copper and its alloy has been a building material for a long time, which has served as building decorative material and different accessories since long ago. Pure copper is claret metal, commonly known as red copper or copper. With a density of 8.92 g/cm3, it belongs to heavy non-ferrous metals. With good electric conductivity and thermal conductivity, it is widely applied to electric industry, for instance, as coil, wire or cable of power generators and transformers.
Brass is the generic term for a range of copper-zinc alloys with differing combinations of properties, including strength, machinability, ductility, wear-resistance, hardness, colour, electrical and thermal conductivity, hygiene and corrosion resistance.
Titanium can be alloyed with iron, aluminium, vanadium, and molybdenum, among other elements, to produce strong, lightweight alloys for aerospace (jet engines, missiles, and spacecraft), military, industrial processes (chemicals and petrochemicals, desalination plants, pulp, and paper), automotive, agriculture (farming), medical prostheses, orthopaedic implants, dental and endodontic instruments and files, dental implants, sporting goods, jewellery, mobile phones, and other applications.
Alloy, a metallic substance composed of two or more elements, as either a compound or a solution. The components of alloys are ordinarily themselves metals, though carbon, a nonmetal, is an essential constituent of steel.
