    Bismuth is a white, brittle metal with a slight pink color and is typically recovered as a by-product of lead and copper. It is commonly used as an alloying element for various low melting alloys where it is mixed with other metals such as Lead, Tin, or Cadmium. It is also used as well for a lead substitute in other materials. The Ingots are our largest size available and have a purity of 99.99% and often serve as grain refiner in the foundry industry as well. Our regular bars can be used in solder applications as a replacement for Lead since it is non-toxic. Our 1/8″ & down shot product allows you to make smaller additions during your casting process and has a purity of 99.9%.

    117 F, 47 C Low Melting Alloy

    This is a Bismuth based Eutectic low melting alloy used for tooling and production aids. It provides you with easily castable material that is ready for use as soon as it freezes. This alloy can be recovered easily and recycled into new uses a number of times. It is mainly used in the optical industry for lens blocking when grinding glass, plastic lenses and optical components. It’s low melting point allows it not to distort the glass or plastic which it supports. Also can be used for proof casting as well.

    This is a Bismuth based Eutectic low melting alloy used very often to bend tubes and rolled or extruded shapes. This alloy which is normally used for tubes up to 2-1/2″ Diameter allows them to be bent or formed to the desired shape without any kinks. Without using this material the tubes or shapes may kink or bend irregularly. It can also be used for work-holding, fusible safety devices and low temperature soldering.

Advantages of Eutectic Alloys vs. Non-Eutectic Alloys to Low Melting Materials

Eutectic alloys and non-eutectic alloys are categories when discussing low melting alloys. Low melting alloys require lower temperature ranges to melt, anywhere from 40 degrees to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. This property allows for the alloys to be melted at lower temperatures without damaging or impacting other nearby materials or surfaces that the low melting alloy…

Pure Bismuth: Characteristics of This Metal

Bismuth is an element that we often hear about in offhand ways yet don’t know a lot about at first. It is a crystalline element that comes in various colors ranging in white, purple, pink and silver. In its pure form, people will often think it is lead. Bismuth is widely used in the manufacturing…

Different Properties of Low Melting Alloys

Joining metal parts together with solder, easily bending pipes to go around corners and components, and lens blocking systems all rely on the use of low melting alloys. This type of metal allows for products, parts and components to be manufactured and cast at lower temperatures. This feature is ideal when requiring lower temperatures to…

Bismuth-Based Low Melting Alloys Providing Benefits to the Art Casting Industry

Throughout history, art casting has been used to create beautiful works of art, to recreate previous works of art that may have become damaged or deteriorated due to age, or when mass-producing art pieces. The art casting method involves using wood, stone, plaster, or silicon rubber molds and some type of pliable material, such as…
