    Reukema - Non Ferrous Metals

    Aluminium is a very frequently used type of metal. It can be used for a wide variety of applications. It is attractive and lightweight,  and used for car production and in the construction industry. Examples of aluminium products or products that include aluminium are cars, window frames, road signs, pots, pans, packaging etc. There are three methods for giving aluminium its definitive shape: casting, drawing and die cutting, referred to as cast...

  • Copper (Cu)

    Copper (Cu)

    Excavations in what is today northern Iraq have shown that copper has been used since around 8700 BC.Other excavations have shown that in 5000 BC, people were melting copper and isolating the minerals containing copper such as malachite and azure. The Sumerians and Egyptians are known to have been melting copper to make bronze since 3,000 BV. Copper is also known to have been used in China, with many high-quality bronze artefacts having been found...

  • Lead (Pb)

    Lead (Pb)

    Lead is a very malleable and weather-resistant material. It is used very often by plumbing work such as roof sealing. Another of lead’s qualities is that it is resistant to radiation. Lead is used as a protective barrier in all situations that involve radiation, from hospital X-rays to oil rigs.

  • Zinc (Zn)

    Zinc (Zn)

    Well-known modern applications for zinc and zinc alloys include gutters, engines and carburettors. The material is easy to set, relatively cheap and easy to solder. In the past, lots of toys were made of zinc. Zinc alloys have been used for centuries. In Palestine and what was formerly known as Transylvania, objects dating back to 1400 BV have been found that contain 87% zinc. Around 1000 AD, people in India had already started melting and partially...

  • Brass (CuZn)

    Brass (CuZn)

    Brass (CuZn) is an alloy of copper and zinc. It is distinctly yellower than pure copper or bronze (an alloy of copper and tin). When the material is exposed to the open air for a long time, it turns dark brown. Brass is a valuable material due to its strength and good self-lubricating qualities. It is frequently used in the production of sanitary equipment due to its malleability and its solid structure. This makes the material easier to, for example,...

  • Bronze

    Bronze

    Bronze is an alloy of copper, lead, tin and zinc with an 85-5-5-5 composition. The alloy can have a reddish to yellowish colour, depending on the quantity of tin. Corrosion creates a green oxide layer. Due to the self-lubricating qualities of the tin, bronze is frequently used to make bearings. Other well-known applications include statues and clocks (the quantity of tin influences the tone of the clock’s chime). The addition of tin makes bronze...
