How Low Melting Alloys Are Used in Safety Devices

The use of metal alloys for their predictable melting points has been a trend in industrial manufacturing and equipment safety for centuries, with low melting alloys specifically being used to prevent boiler disasters as far back as 1803. These alloys, also known as fusible alloys, melt at a low temperature relative to the environment they…

Low Melting Point Alloys and Their Industrial Uses

From fuses and thermostats to molds and tube bending, you can find low melting point alloys in countless industrial applications and products. Low melting point alloys, also called fusible alloys, are unique in that they’re meltable at relatively low temperatures and have high thermal conductivity. This makes them suitable across a variety of industrial applications…
