What is the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metal?
You may be wondering what the difference is between ferrous and non-ferrous metals. In short, ferrous metals contain metals such as iron or steel and therefore mean that the metal is magnetic. Non-ferrous metals differ to ferrous metals as they do not contain iron therefore rendering them to be non magnetic and also less likely to corrode.
At Mackers, we boast a large vehicle fleet for collections and also fast response and turnaround times. Our 100% flexible service is transparent, honest and trustworthy.
