What is Ferrous Metal?

Metal is a material that exhibits properties such as heat and electrical conductivity and hardness. A manufactured metal is made from ingredients mostly mined from ore in the earth. Metallurgy is the study of the properties, behavior, and structure of metals. Basically, it is the study of how to get the best use out of metals.

A ferrous metal consists primarily of iron. Ferrous metal can contain a variety of other elements, but its main content must be iron. Non-ferrous metals are those without iron or metals that contain very little iron. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals share many of the same properties. However, ferrous metal is less expensive and more corrosive than non-ferrous metal. The two most common ferrous metals in industry are steel and cast iron.
