Bismuth Products

Bismuth Metal, Compounds and Alloys


Vital Materials supplies all manner of bismuth metal-based products ranging from bismuth ingots, needles, and shot in bulk, to all varieties of bismuth oxide which differ in particle size, shape, and other special properties. Vital Materials is also a supplier of bismuth compounds like bismuth sub-nitrate for catalyst production, bismuth citrate for dishwasher tablets, and also pharmaceutical compounds like bismuth subsalicylate and bismuth subgallate for the digestive system.

Properties

Bismuth is marginally radioactive and is the most naturally diamagnetic element. It has one of the lowest values of thermal conductivity among metals. It has a high electrical resistivity. Like water, bismuth is less dense as a solid than as a liquid (it expands as it cools), a property unique for a metal.

Applications

  • Bismuth metal: is used as an additive in copper, aluminum, iron, and steel to toughen and make alloys that are more machinable, bismuth shot for shotgun ammunition, bismuth powder for radiation shielding in medical application.
  • Bismuth alloys: used as lens block or work holding for turbine blades, radiation shielding, tube bending, soldering, fusible alloys.
  • Bismuth oxides: glass, ceramics, varistor, arrestor, capacitor, ferrites, coatings.
  • Bismuth compounds: catalyst in coating industry, pigments, friction materials, catalyst in plastic industry, lubricants, cosmetics.
  • Bismuth pharmaceuticals: Several different Bi based products are used for peptic ulcer, upset stomach, diarrhea, ointments, suppositories, and veterinary purposes.
