Highly resistant to corrosion, lead is a soft, ductile and malleable metal with a low melting point, and has been one of the most widely used metals since prehistoric times, particularly in the foundry sector.
The most common use of lead ingots is in the manufacture of accumulators and batteries.
However, not only lead ingot alloys are used in a wide range of industrial sectors. Molten lead ingots are commonly used as a wear-reducing agent in lubricants and as a corrosion inhibitor in furnaces.
Lead is also used in paints, varnishes and synthetic and artificial pigments in the chemical industry. In this field, the use of lead ingots in the production of naval paints as a means of preventing scaling on hulls should be highlighted.
Moreover, lead ingots are widely used in the manufacture and handling of acids, and as radiation shielding.

Clerins tailor-made lead ingots
Our warehouses are permanently stocked with lead ingots of around 35 kg in weight in order to ensure rapid, efficient delivery.
Moreover, we can always manufacture other sizes and finishes of lead ingots for our clients in accordance with their needs.
Finally, it should be pointed out that lead is a very heavy material, a quality that makes it ideal for use as ballast or a counterweight. To this end, we always have ballast lead ingots in stock for our clients, for use as a counterweight in ships, machinery, cranes, lifting devices, wheelbarrows, wagons, etc., in addition to fishing weights.
