Bismuth Amalgam

Home > Scrap General > Scrap Metal Commodities Reference - B > Bismuth Amalgam

A thin fluid amalgam prepared by adding mercury to molten bismuth. Almost any proportions of these ingredients may be used. Bismuth amalgams, on account of their fluidity, are useful for filling very delicate moulds. Other amalgams are also rendered more fluid by adding to them a small proportion of a bismuth amalgam.
Bismuth amalgam is sometimes used for silvering glass globes and similar articles.
The amalgam will pass through chamois-leather like mercury. The drops, however, are pear-shaped and not perfectly globular as in the case of pure mercury.
