Aluminium is the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon. This material is remarkable for its low density and ability to resist corrosion.
Cobalt is found in the Earth's crust in chemically combined forms. The free element is produced by reductive smelting. The material however is more usually produced as a by-product of copper and nickel mining.
Copper is a soft, malleable and ductile metal with high thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper is one of the few metals that occurs in nature in a usable form. This led to very early human use from c. 8000 BC
Lead is a heavy metal that is denser than most common materials. Lead is soft and malleable, and has a relatively low melting point.
Manganese is often found in minerals in combination with iron. This material is essential to iron and steel production due to its deoxidizing and alloying properties.
Nickel is used in many specific industrial products including stainless steel, magnets, coinage, batteries and special alloys. Due to its resistance to corrosion nickel was used a cheap coinage metal until the 20th century when it was replaced with cheaper stainless steel (except in the USA and Canada)
Titanium is a lustrous transition metal with a low density and high strength. This material can be alloyed with iron, aluminium, vanadium and molybdenum to produce strong, light weight alloys for the aerospace, military, automotive and medical industries.
