Metal Products

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals hold an extremely high importance in the daily life of society, as well as for the strength and growth of each and every economy. The metal industry is indeed very important for the EU’s economy, competitiveness, and industrial development. The sectors are strategic in terms of employment and production added value. Metals can be recycled endlessly, which in turn means the saving of raw materials and energy as well as reductions in CO2 emissions.

  • Ferrous metals and alloys are iron-based materials. They are used in a wide range of industrial applications. Some of the most important types of such alloys include carbon steels, stainless steelstool steels and cast iron. Ferrous metals are used in construction materials, tools, medical devices, wires, automotive, aerospace, military, medical fields, etc.
  • Non-ferrous metals include aluminium, copper, zinc and other alloys that do not contain iron. They are very important for the manufacturing industries and are irreplaceable for many products in the construction, automotive, aerospace and mechanical engineering sectors. They have unique thermal, electrical, and isolating characteristics.
