One of our most commonly asked questions is about the melting point of metals. Depending on the project or end use, melting point can have a huge impact on your result. If you’re trying to melt metal or exposing metal to high heat, you’ll want to be aware of the melting point for the specific material you are using.
The melting point of iron alloys and the melting point of steel, occur at higher temperatures, around 2,200-2,500 Fahrenheit (°F) / 1,205-1,370 Celsius (°C). Melting points of copper alloys (including bronzes, pure copper, and brass) are lower than iron, at ranges around 1,675-1,981°F / 913-1,082°C. Metals alloyed with aluminum and the aluminum melting point have a lower temperature range than copper alloys. Pure aluminum melts at about 1,218 °F / 659 °C, but alloying with other elements can raise this. The chart below includes the more common metals found in our catalog such as the stainless steel melting point and titanium melting point!
Common Melting Points Metals
This melting point chart contains the most common metals used in manufacturing in order of their melting points, and are more commonly used due to factors like strength and corrosion resistance.

Which Metal Has the Lowest Melting Point?
At the lower extremes of melting point is mercury (and aluminum alloys for more commonly used metals). Mercury has the lowest melting point coming in at -38 °F / -39 °C, while aluminum alloys melt at 865-1,240 °F / 463-671 °C.
Which Metal Has the Highest Melting Point?
Towards the high end of melting point extremes is tungsten (and titanium for more commonly used metals). Tungsten has the highest melting point coming in at the extremely high temperature of 6,150 °F / 3,399 °C, while titanium melts at 3,040 °F / 1,670 °C.
