About Lead

In appearance, Lead is a metallic gray element which has many different applications. Being soft and malleable, it has low melting point. It is widely utilised in the production of batteries, fusible alloys, ammunition, metal products (solder and pipes), as well as in the devices to shield X-rays.

Chemical Formula:

  • Pb

Synonyms:

  • 7439-92-1
  • Plumbum

Molecular Weight:    

  • 207.2 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Batteries
  • Cable sheaths 
  • Machinery manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Light industry
  • Lead oxide
  • Radiation protection

Production Process

  • Production of Lead via Sintering.

The primary production of lead begins with the Sintering process, where concentrated lead ore is processed inside a sintering machine along with iron, silica, limestone fluxes, soda ash, pyrite, zinc, caustics or pollution control particulates. Smelting uitlises reduction substances, which are known for combining with the oxidising agents. Hence, reduction is the last step in this smelting process, which further produces elemental Lead.
