Low Melting Point Alloys
H.G. Press Alloy is one of the eutectics, i.e. it has a sharp melting point (138°C) and like the majority of Bismuth based alloys it expands on solidification. This material is free flowing and its versatility makes it a unique tool in a great variety of industries. Its low melting point ensures easy and safe handling and under normal conditions it can be re-used almost indefinitely.
Press Alloy is manufactured from virgin metals and is guaranteed to give complete satisfaction under normal working conditions.
