  • Material information:

  • Iron is the fourth most common element in the earth's crust and the most common element on earth, even before oxygen. A silvery-grey coloured metallic lump in appearance. It is usually found in mineral form as it oxidises easily. When used in relation with other elements to create alloys it is proven to be substantially tougher. By far the most common of industrial metals, because of its relatively low cost and exceptional mechanical properties.
