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 Needles allow you to have more surface area and pack very tight when melting. They have a purity of 99.9%.

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%.

  • 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.

  • 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 white element is an essential part of many alloys Purple-Silver, crystalline Bismuth has been in use since the early days of alloying, although during those times, it was often mistaken for Lead. It’s the most naturally diamagnetic element, which means it repels both north and south, and it has one of the lowest values…
