Lead Alloys for casting DoIt Molds

Antimony: Adds strength and hardness. May cause premature solidifiion, wrinkles or other molding flaws. Avoid metals containing antimony. Zinc: Makes a lead alloy sluggish, limits its ability to flow and requires a higher casting temperature. It can cause roughness, porosity, voids and a grainy or frosted appearance on castings.

About half of this antimony is used metallurgically, principally in alloys. Because some antimony alloys expand on solidifying (a rare characteristic that they share with water), they are particularly valuable as castings and type metal the expansion of the alloy forces the metal to fill the small crevices of casting molds.Moreover, the presence of antimony in type metal, which also includes

Apr 10, 2012 · Sources for Antimony. Let''s say you run into a source of pure soft lead. In order to turn it into bullets you''ll need to add a few percent of another metal called Antimony in order to make it harder. Percentages of Antimony vary but 5% is a good rule of thumb.
