Babbitt metals are either lead or tin based, and the metal makes excellent bearings that are easy to pour as a DIY project. However, before you pour your bearings, you must select the correct babbitt metal in order to ensure your engine or piece of machinery operates correctly and efficiently. If you know the composition…
Featuring Aluminum, Lead, Pewter, Solders, Jewelry, Sculpture, Tin, Zinc Alloys in a variety of forms for many applications
White metals are any of several light-colored alloys used as a base for plated silverware, ornaments or novelties, as well as any of several lead-based or tin-based alloys used for things like bearings, jewelry, miniature figures, fusible plugs, and many other applications.
White Metal alloys are generally made up of these metals: Antimony, Tin, Cadmium, Bismuth, and Zinc, though which ones being used vary based on the need. As an example, a base metal for jewelry needs to be castable, polishable, have good flow characteristics and have the ability to cast fine detail without an excessive amount of porosity.
Applications: Jewelry Alloys, Pewter, Babbitt Alloys, Fusible Alloys, Tin-Lead Solders, Casting Alloys, Aluminum Joining
Forms: Pig, Ingot, Bar, Cake, Shot, Granular, Mossy

Semiconductors, machine bearings, and utensils are all made from varying amounts of metal alloys. Yet these items also possess one common factor: antimony. Antimony is a semi-metal element that comes in both a powdered form as well as a hard and brittle metal. Possessing a silvery, blush white appearance, this element is highly desired when…
