MENUMENU

Lead Single Crystal 82Pb207.19

Lead is a soft, weak, ductile, dull grey metal that tarnishes in moist air but is stable to oxygen and water. It dissolves in HNO3. Lead is used in batteries, cables, glass, solder, radiation shielding, etc. A little is still used in paints and petrol but generally this use is being phased out.
