Here are just some of the non-ferrous metals A.M.P.I. Srl can offer to its customers:

 

Magnesium Metal
Magnesium is a light metal color silver white and quite hard, It tarnishes slightly when exposed to air.
As a pure metal is used very little: however, assumes a great importance because it enters in the composition of many light alloys, and because it is the basic element of the ultra-light alloys.
And easy to work and excellent castability.
It used to light up pieces: wheels and structural elements of racing cars and airplanes, parts of typewriters and calculators etc..

 

Manganese Metal
The manganese is  pinkish-gray metal . It s an hard metal but at the same time very fragile, fondibile with difficulty but easily oxidized. Manganese metal reacts with water (it rusts like iron) and dissolves in dilute acids.
Manganese has numerous applications that are part of our daily life, objects made from steel, batteries, portable beverage cans to aluminum-based alloy. In each case manganese plays a vital role in improving the properties of alloys.
Manganese has played a key role in the development of various methods of steel making and its importance is demonstrated by the fact that about 90% of all manganese produced annually is used as an alloying element in steels. It has not been found any evidence to substitute it for use in the steel alloy that brings the same properties with the same relatively low cost and it is unlikely that in future they are

 

Lead Metal
Lead is a bluish-white metal is very soft, dense, ductile and malleable, it also has a low electrical conductivity. It can be made harder by adding a small amount of antimony.
Lead is used in huge amounts in batteries and as a coating of electrical cables, pipes, tanks, and the apparatus for X-rays. Due to its high density and large section of capture, lead is used as a screening substance for radioactive materials. Numerous alloys containing a high percentage of lead are used for welding, for printing characters, and  for the gears. A considerable amount of lead compounds is also consumed in the formation of compounds, especially for paints and pigments.
 

Copper Metal
Currently, copper is still a material widely used and appreciated for its characteristics: high electrical and thermal conductivity, high resistance to corrosion, ductility, flexibility and robustness, ability to maintain over time its chemical and physical properties. Another area of
​​particular interest to use copper-based alloys, is that of the bars brass fittings and valves.
Among the most common applications of pure material we can quote also other uses like for the transportation of water pipes, electric wires and cables, rolled to the bodies of boilers and storage tanks, components for electric motors (of which improve efficiency) and, for the construction  field, shingles for roofs and exterior coverings. Copper is also a green building material that is particularly appreciated as a raw material for the production of heat pumps, manifolds, solar panels, radiant floor and wall.
In recent times the industry has begun to use this material, even in the most advanced fields of technology for the production of super-conductors, shape memory alloys and microprocessors for computers.

 

Tin Metal
In its  free state, tin metal is a silvery-white metal, ductile and malleable.
Tin metal is much sought after and it is used in many industrial processes. In the form of tin is used as a thin protective coating of copper for containers for various types of metals used to produce boxes and similar articles. It is important in the preparation of very common alloys such as bronze (tin and copper), solder (tin and lead) and the bearing metal (tin, lead and antimony). It is also used as an alloy with titanium in the aerospace industry and as a component of some insecticides.
 

Zinc Metal
Zinc is a lustrous bluish-white metal. It is brittle and crystalline at ordinary temperatures, but when heated between 110 ° C and 150 ° C it becomes ductile and malleable, so it can be rolled into sheets.
It is used principally for galvanizing iron, more than 50% of metallic zinc in galvanized steel finish, but it is also important in the preparation of certain alloys, such as anti-friction metal, brass, German silver, and sometimes bronze. It is used for the negative plates in certain electric batteries and for roofing and gutters of buildings.
Zinc is the primary metal used in making American pennies, it  is used also for  die casting in the automotive industry.
