Scrap Metals We Purchase

Our scrap metal merchants purchase both ferrous and non-ferrous metals from clients around Croydon, Beckenham, Thornton Heath and West Wickham. But what’s the difference between the two?


Ferrous Scrap Metal – Common ferrous metals we purchase include cast iron, wrought iron, carbon steel and stainless steel. More tensile than their non-ferrous cousins, they are also known for being easy to work into shape, and for both their thermo-conductivity and electro-conductivity. Croydon, Beckenham, Thornton Heath and West Wickham residents can quickly identify ferrous metals as they’re magnetic; powerful magnets are also the method our scrap metal merchants use to separate out mixed loads of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.


Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal – While ferrous scrap metals have similar characteristics, non-ferrous metals can differ wildly in their properties. One thing that unites them, however, is the fact they’re not magnetic. Our scrap metal merchants are particularly keen on purchasing aluminium, brass, copper, lead, nickel and zinc from clients in the Croydon, Beckenham, Thornton Heath and West Wickham areas.


Catalytic Converters – Containing rare metals which are constantly sought after on the international market, spent or otherwise unwanted catalytic converters can fetch decent sums at our scrap metal merchants. We’ll ensure they’re fairly and accurately graded, using sophisticated technology and cross-referencing up-to-date databases on scrap value.
