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. Our Powder is the finest form that we offer and has become increasingly popular as a substitute for Lead when producing Radiation Shielding Blankets. The powder has a purity of 99%.

Common Uses for Powdered Metals

If you are debating the best form or metal to use for your manufacturing business, you may be surprised to learn that powdered metals have just as many uses as their metal alloy counterparts. In fact, adding a powdered metal to your master alloy can increase certain desirable properties and decrease certain undesirable properties. Our…

Characteristics of Low Melting Alloys

Manufacturers around the globe rely on quality materials to create a range of parts, equipment and products for businesses and consumers. During the assembly process, different materials may need to be joined together for a tight seal, cast in a mold to a designed form, or bent into a new direction without collapsing. Low melting…

Powdered metals help engineers produce parts cost-effectively What is the best way to make a 3-D part out of metal? It depends. There are a number of considerations involved, including time and money. To create parts, manufacturers can choose either a subtractive or an additive manufacturing process. Subtractive manufacturing involves taking a block of material…

Liquid metal’s low melting point

Fusible alloys’ low melting point makes them useful in a wide variety of applications The melting point of aluminum is 1,220 degrees Fahrenheit. Carbon steel melts somewhere between 2,600 and 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit, and the temperature needs to rise all the way up to 6,150 degrees Fahrenheit to melt tungsten. Specialized furnaces are needed to…

The Basics of Bismuth

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…
