Metal lead

Technical Characteristics

The soft and malleable metal lead belongs to the group of heavy non-ferrous metals along with copper, tin and zinc. Among its main properties are its poor conductivity of electricity and heat. Mankind has been familiar with this metal for several thousand years, but it has been in widespread use for a relatively short time. It is mined from deposits of intermetallic compounds. Its main suppliers are the United States, the European Union, Korea and China. Today, the price per kilogram of lead on the world market is 1.5 dollars. One of its main advantages is its chemical inertness and protection against gamma radiation which explains its popularity in chemical industry, nuclear power and medicine.

Specific gravity of Pb 11.3415 g/cm³.
Atomic weight 207,2
Oxidation state 0 +2, +4
Melting point 327,46 °C
Boiling point 1749°C
Specific heat of melting 4.77 kJ/mol

Lead alloys

Lead alloys can be divided into two categories, high-alloyed and low-alloyed. The first category includes alloys with special additives that increase the metal's resistance to external influences. Such additives can increase the antifriction properties, change the melting point and the degree of shrinkage. Alloys with tin, nickel, antimony, cadmium, copper that increase corrosion resistance in sour environments and high humidity conditions are referred to low-alloys. Antimony or copper additives increase strength and make it possible to use the alloy for making construction materials, such as sheets, fittings and pipes. Tin additives make it possible to manufacture low-voltage and power cables.
