Metal fatigue under high-pressure environments is a critical concern within numerous industries, directly influencing the durability and safety of many applications. This intricate process of material weakening due to repeated stress cycles often leads to crack formation and ultimate failure.
Scrap metal buying and selling is a fickle industry, with prices fluctuating regularly. The cost is primarily influenced by the worldwide market for supply and demand. However, the prices can also vary with the quantity and quality of the scrap metal you may be looking to sell. This blog will cover the value of the different types of scrap metal, the importance of scrap metal recycling and the impacts that make the prices fluctuate.
Aluminium is a widely used metal across many industries. It is also one of the most commonly recycled metals globally – and for a good reason. Aluminium is a great candidate for scrap metal recycling because 100% of scrap aluminium can be recycled without losing quality. This blog will look at what aluminium is and why it’s essential in scrap metal recycling.
Morecambe Metals are specialists of ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling. We’ve previously talked about some of these metals, such as aluminium and lead, and are now turning our attention to zinc. Continue reading “Metals and Their Properties: Zinc”
We’ve talked about different metals and their properties, such as copper, aluminium and steel. In this article, we’re taking a look at another key metal that is used for many different applications and in a wide range of industries: lead. Continue reading “Metals and Their Properties: Lead”
Previously, we have discussed iron, copper, steel, and aluminium as part of our ongoing series ‘Metals and Their Properties’. In this article, we are turning our attention to the qualities, applications and history of stainless steel. As experts in the scrap metal recycling business, we hope to show you the usefulness and importance of recycling stainless steel.
In this section of ‘Metals and their Properties’, we’re tooting our horns for brass. Brass alloy shares its name with the group of wind instruments, but we’re going to be looking at more than just its instrumental value. In this post, we’ll cover the history of the uses of brass, including its place in non-ferrous metal recycling.
We’ve taken an in-depth look at three different metals so far: copper, iron and aluminium. We’ll be wrapping up our series, “Metal and Their Properties”, with a comprehensive look at one of the world’s most widely used metals: steel.
Having previously focused on iron and copper as part of our ongoing series “Metals and Their Properties”, we are now discussing aluminium properties and uses, and the reasons why this metal is so popular. Continue reading “Metals and Their Properties: Aluminium”
Following from last month’s article on iron, this next instalment in the “Metals and Their Properties” series will focus on copper. While we’ve previously talked a little bit about this metal on our article “Different Metals and Their Properties”, we’re now looking at it a lot more in-depth.
