What is a non-ferrous metals

Metal is a glossy, has good conductivity, thermal conductivity and mechanical properties, and has positive temperature coefficient of resistance material. Metal, is a big family, and now the world's 86 species of metal. Usually people put metal into two categories, ferrous and nonferrous metals.

Ferrous and nonferrous metals that name, is often misled to believe that black metal is black, and it is not. Only three types of ferrous metals: iron, manganese and chromium.
