Antimonial Lead is a hard alloy of lead that contains between 1% to 10% antimony. When antimony is mixed with lead, the lead becomes firmer and harder. It is unreactive, resists oxidation and corrosion in most environments, and forms a protective, impermeable film faster than pure lead.
At Mayer Alloys, we have antimonial lead available in various forms, including ingots, anodes, tubes, wires, sheets, plates, and pigs.
Antimonial Lead Applications
Because of its strength and durability, antimonial lead can be used for the following:
- Wheel weights
- Sheet lead
- Storage-battery plates
- Tank linings
