Specialty Alloys of Lead
Antimonial Lead is produced by introducing Antimony into lead. Metallic antimony is a brittle metal with a crystalline texture. Antimony is a harder metal than lead. When combined with lead, it forms an alloy this is harder and/or firmer. The percentage of antimony in the alloys is dependent on your application and/or specifications.
S.R.L.P Antimonial lead is available in sheet, extrusions, and in casting.
