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.
