Low Melting Point Alloys
Lens 136 Alloy
Tool Alloy, one of the well known group of low-melting point bismuth based alloys, is solid below 100°C and liquid at about 230°C. Unlike eutectic alloys, Tool Alloy exhibits plasticity in the temperature range between 100°C and 230°C . It expands on solidification and in this respect is unique as an anchoring medium.
H.G. Tool Alloy is manufactured from virgin metals and is guaranteed to give complete satisfaction under normal working conditions.
