Due to its density and ductility, lead sheet is a very useful material for industrial applications. Lead is relatively inert, resistant to corrosion, and has a low melting point. Lead plates, sometimes called lead plates, are usually easy to process, shape, and perform other tasks. The following is an introduction about the application of lead plates and various uses of lead:
1. The application of lead plates
The special properties of lead plates make them ideal for many different applications. Common industrial applications of lead plates include:
Radiation shielding (medical and other)
Professional waterproof application
2. Available leading products
Industrial metal supply stock lead plates are available in three standard thicknesses (1/32 inch, 1/16 inch and 1/8 inch) and 48 inches x 20 inches or 48 inches x 25 inches (depending on the thickness). Our lead material inventory includes: Lead sheet, lead ingot and lead pellets
Lead plates are produced on a rolling mill and then cut into sizes suitable for various medical applications. The high density and high atomic number of lead plates make it an efficient building material for protecting vaults and areas in medical facilities from gamma rays and x-ray radiation. Lead plates can be used wherever radiation protection is required, such as walls, window frames and doors. We also designed the shape and size of each mold to minimize waste and avoid increased manufacturing costs. The lead plate conforms to various specifications of the Institute of Materials and Testing (Society for Materials and Testing), it is resistant to corrosion and most chemicals, and is manufactured in accordance with consistent standards in various thicknesses and sizes.
Lead plate manufacturers
Lead has many different uses. It can be used as a pure metal, form an alloy with other metals, or used as a compound.
Three, various uses of lead:
1. Lead plate battery
The main consumption of lead is for lead-acid batteries. In lead-acid batteries, the grid or plate is made of lead or lead and other metals (more commonly, antimony).
2. Rolled extrusions
Lead sheets are used for waterproofing or weathering in the construction industry to prevent water penetration & used for roofs and coverings. Because of its resistance to chemical corrosion, lead plates can also be used to line chemical treatment tanks, acid plants and storage containers. The high-density lead plate makes it a very effective sound insulation material. Lead-clad steel is also used for radiation shielding.
3. Lead pipe
Lead pipes are used in chemical plants to transport corrosive chemicals due to their corrosion resistance. Similarly, the appropriate composition of the lead pipe is still squeezed into a short "sleeve", which is used to connect the lead-sheathed cable.
4. Lead alloy
Lead forms alloys with many metals. Alloys formed from tin, copper, arsenic, antimony, bismuth, cadmium, and sodium are of industrial importance. Lead is used to make bearings, solder, wear-resistant metals and typed metals. Soft solders are mainly lead-tin alloys with or without antimony, while fusible alloys are various combinations of lead, tin, bismuth, cadmium and other low-melting metals. Red lead is an alloy of lead, antimony and arsenic. Lead foil is made of lead alloy. Lead is added to brass to reduce machine tool wear.
