alloys, fusible



alloys, fusible defined in 1909 year

alloys, fusible - Alloys, Fusible;
alloys, fusible - Several alloys having very low melting-points are used for purposes where great softness is required. They are chiefly as follows: (1) 8 parts bismuth, 5 lead, 3 tin, melted together; melting-point, 202° F. (94.5° C.). (2) 2 parts bismuth, 5 lead, 3 tin; melts in boiling water. (3) 5 parts bismuth, 3 lead, 2 tin; melts at 197° F. (92° C.). (4) 15 parts bismuth, 8 lead, 4 tin, 3 cadmium; known as "Wood's patent"; has a brilliant metallic lustre, does not tarnish readily, and melts between 150° and 160° F. (65½° to 71° C.). (5) 5 volumes each of bismuth, lead, and tin, with 4 of cadmium, form an alloy which is quite liquid at l50°F. (65½°C.). (6) 4 volumes each of bismuth, lead, and tin, with 3 of cadmium, fuses at 163 J ° F. (67½° C.). (7) 2 volumes each of bismuth, lead, and tin, with 1 of cadmium, or 1 volume of each of the four metals, fuses at 155½° F. (68½° C.). (8) 1 part tin, 1 lead, 2 bismuth; melts at 200° F. (93.5° C.). (9) 15 parts bismuth, 8 lead, 4 tin, 2 cadmium; melts below 140° F. (60° C.). N.B. - All the alloys containing cadmium are liable to undergo rapid oxidation in contact with water.
