Bismuth (Bi) Metal

Bismuth (Bi) is hard, brittle, lustrous, and coarsely gray crystalline with a reddish tinge and of a high density. While it is a poor conductor of electricity, bismuth has the greatest increase in electrical resistance when placed in a magnetic field of any metal. Bismuth’s thermal conductivity is lower than all other metals except mercury.
Purities available from 99% up to 99.999%

Bismuth needles are available with a purity of 99.9%
Typical Applications

Bismuth metal is usually alloyed with other metals. These have low melting points and are used in fire detectors and extinguishers, electric fuses, magnetic memory devices, and solders. Bismuth is also used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and pigments.
