cadmium-free alloy with a low melting point as an alternative to Wood's Metal
Ingredients: bismuth, lead, tin
Storage: Inorganic #1
Shelf Life: Indefinite
Color: Metallic gray.
Technical Note: Onion's Fusible Alloy is a safer choice as a metal alloy in lieu of high lead- or cadmium-containing alloys. This alloy has a melting point about 15 ºF (8 ºC) below the boiling point of water. Students are enthusiastic about the use of this alloy particularly since it melts before water boils.
