 Bismuth Metal

We offer Bismuth (Bi) Pellets, 99.99% pure, in 100 gram and 454 gram (1 Lb) packages.  Each pellet is 10 grams. When you order a 100 gram bag of bismuth, you will receive 10 bismuth pellets. When you order 1 Lb Bismuth, you receive a total of 46 pellets. 

As with all our products, you can save by selecting larger packaging.

Bismuth  is a white, crystalline, brittle metal with a pinkish tinge. It occurs in a native state. Bismuth is the most diamagnetic of all metals, with low thermal conductivity and high electrical resistance. Bismuth expands 3.32% on solidification. This property makes bismuth alloys particularly suited to the making of sharp castings of objects subject to damage by high temperatures. With other metals such as tin, cadmium, etc., bismuth forms low-melting alloys which are extensively used for safety devices in fire detection and extinguishing systems. Bismuth is used in producing malleable irons and is finding use as a catalyst for making acrylic fibers. When bismuth is heated in air it burns with a blue flame, forming yellow fumes of the oxide. Its soluble salts are characterized by forming insoluble basic salts on the addition of water, a property sometimes used in detection work.

It is finding use as a catalyst for making acrylic fibers. Bismuth has also been used in solders due to fact that it expands slightly upon freezing.

Bismuth is used in making bismuth alloys, solders, science experiments involving magnet levitation, ceramic glazes, fishing sinkers, making bismuth compounds, and casting of bismuth products.
