Lead is a soft, malleable, ductile, bluish-white metal and corrosion resistant. It is the heaviest non-radioactive element.
The main application of lead today is in the production of lead-acid batteries for cars. It is also used in building construction, bullet, and shot, alloys including pewter and solder, etc.
Lead can form many useful compounds. Lead monoxide (PbO) is used to make lead crystal and flint glass, or used as a paint pigment. Lead fluoride is often used as an infrared light material and synchrotron material.
Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) now can provide various lead products including:
Lead Fluoride (PbF2): Up to 99.999%
Lead (Pb), Lead Oxide (PbO), Lead Titanate (PbTiO3), Lead Zirconate (PbZrO3), Lead Lanthanum Zirconium Titanate (PLZT, Pb1-xLax(ZryTi1-y)1-0.25xO3), Lead Zirconium Titanate (PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3), Lead Sulfide (PbS), Lead Selenide (PbSe), Lead Telluride (PbTe)
