Lead Metal

Chemical Formula Available Form Description of the Product
Pb – 99.97% Dia = 9, 13, 16mm Cored Wire, Powder, Granules, Shots, Ingots Lead is only slightly soluble in liquid or solid steel and, when added, some will be present as a dispersion of discrete but preferably submicroscopic metallic lead inclusions. Its sole function is to improve machinability. It is added to steels for improving machinability. Leaded steels are more costly to produce than free-machining grades containing added phosphorus or sulfur. However, their price is justified by their much improved machinability and the fact that they do not suffer from the embrittlement these other elements invariably cause. Can be used in automobile batteries and cable sheathing.
