Types and Application of Alloys Made By Lead Manufacturers in India

Dec 22nd 2014 at 10:39 PM

Lead is used by man since thousands of years, and with time the importance of lead in the manufacturing world has increased. Lead alloy manufacturers in India have been providing high grade lead in various forms and alloys to other industries to be used for a number of applications.

Types of lead

Corroding Lead

It is used to make pigments, oxides of lead, and other lead chemicals and has excellent corrosion-resistant properties, and the same goes for alloys of corroding lead as well.

Chemical Lead

Chemical lead is a refined form of lead that same some copper of silver residual content in it. The residues in this type of lead make it suitable for use in various industrial applications.

Copper Bearing Lead

Corrosion bearing lead exhibits great anti-corrosion properties. Common lead has silver and bismuth in more quantity that corroding lead and is used to make battery oxide and other alloys.

Commercial lead alloys obtained from lead alloy manufacturers in India are made by adding special alloying elements to lead, which otherwise is a soft and ductile material. Antimony, tin, arsenic and calcium are the commonly used alloying elements used by lead alloy manufacturers in India.

Alloying elements, when added to lead, give it special properties and make it useful for industrial applications or for manufacturing goods. For example, adding tin to lead or to an alloy of lead increases the hardness and strength. Tin also makes the lead suitable for industrial processes like melting, casting, and wetting as tin allows lead to easily bond with other metals like steel and copper.

Uses of Lead

Lead supplied by lead alloy manufacturers in India has several applications and is used to make a number of products.

The most commonly used lead-based products are lead-acid storage batteries, ammunition, and building construction materials like sheets, pipes and solder.

Battery Grids

Lead is used for making lead acid storage batteries that consist of grid plates made from calcium lead or antimony lead.


Sheets made from lead are used in construction, especially chemical industries as lead offers excellent protection against many types of chemical attacks.


Lead pipes are resistant to corrosion and are flexible and are used in water distribution networks and plumbing.

There are many more applications of lead produced by lead manufacturers in India. Lead alloys of various composition and alloying elements are available and their properties can be utilized in industrial applications.
