10KG Bismuth Metal Bismuth ingot high pure metal for making bismuth crystals
Bismuth is a white, crystalline, brittle metal with a pinkish tinge, it is the most diamagnetic of all metals, and the thermal conductivity is lower than any metal except mercury. It has a high electrical resistance, and the highest Hall effect of any metal (that is, the greatest increase in electrical resistance when placed in a magnetic field). Bismuth is stable to oxygen and water but dissolves in concentrated nitric air. All bismuth salts form insoluble compounds when put into water.
Application: Bismuth metal is used in the manufacture of low melting solders and fusible alloys as well as low toxicity shot and fishing sinkers. Certain bismuth compounds are also manufactured and used as pharmaceuticals. Industry makes use of bismuth compounds as catalysts in manufacturing acrylonitrile, the starting material for synthetic fibres and rubbers.
