Low-Melting or Fusible alloys are silvery white alloys that melt at relatively low temperatures and can easily fuse with other metals. Their general melting point is at temperatures below 450 degrees Fahrenheit (233 degrees Celsius). These metals can feature high percentages of bismuth, lead, tin, indium, and others. Fusible low melt alloys are ideal for many industrial applications because they expand only ~3.3% of their volume when changing from liquid to solid form. They can also be reused since they are rarely consumed in operation.
Applications for Fusible Low Melt Alloys
Depending on what type of fusible low melt alloy you’re using, there are a variety of applications, including:
- Lens blocking
- Proof casting
- Dental models
- Safety devices and alarms
- Radiation blocking for X-rays
- Filler for supporting castings
- Tube bending
- Foundry patterns.
