Metals are elements, compounds or alloys that are generally hard when present in the solid state. They are generally characterized by their shiny appearance, their electrical and thermal conductivity, their ductility, their ductility and their ability to melt.
More than 75% of the elements of the periodic table are metals. While we generally believe that metals are present in the end products we use, their origins begin below the surface of the Earth. Certain elements such as aluminum and iron are abundant in the earth's crust, while others such as palladium and gold are extremely rare. However, producing even the most common items requires enormous energy and manpower. The physical properties of metals make them ideal raw materials for the construction and manufacture of many essential items that we use in our daily life. The construction industry uses metals to build bridges, homes, office buildings, railways and airports. The manufacturing industry uses metals to make cars, electronics, factory equipment, jewelry, kitchen utensils, dental equipment, a shield, cutlery and many other items. Metals also play a role in the energy and storage industry. These are important components in the production of batteries and even play a crucial role in the creation of nuclear energy.
Base Metals – metals widely used in commercial and industrial applications
Metals are used in all industries, from construction to manufacturing of machinery, electronics and consumer goods. Metal products can be divided into two types: precious metals and industrial metals. Precious metals traded on the Beddu-Trading platform include gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The trading unit is the troy ounce.
Of the industrial metals, we trade in stainless-steel, iron, copper, aluminium, hardened steel and more are available for trading at this stage. Industrial metals are traded in metric tons.
