Lead, a soft, low melting point metal that has excellent corrosion resistance and ductility, is normally alloyed with other metals to improve its mechanical properties. The principal metals alloyed with lead are antimony, arsenic, calcium, copper, tin, tellurium, and silver. Minor alloying elements are cadmium, bismuth, selenium, indium, aluminum, and strontium.
Lead alloys are generally melted and cast into molds to produce useful shapes. The alloys are also rolled, extruded, and forged. The primary use for lead alloys is in the production of battery parts for lead-acid batteries.
The refining process adopted by us produces Refined Lead Ingots with a minimum purity level of 99.975 % by weight but achieves purity level of 99.98 % or more in most cases.

We are engaged in making Lead available in several forms including LME registered and non registered 99.97% and 99.99% as well as secondary ingots, foil, granules, powder, rod, shot, sheet, and wire. Lead is a bluish-white lustrous metal. It is very soft, highly malleable, ductile, and a relatively poor conductor of electricity. It is very resistant to corrosion but tarnishes upon exposure to air. Alloys include pewter and solder.
