General information about lead

Lead (abbreviation Pb, specific weight 11.35, melting point 327 ˚C) has a blue grey colour, is heavy, fairly soft and resistant to acid and corrosion. Lead is a frequently occurring natural substance and is used by man for thousands of years. The Romans used it as a metal to produce their water pipes.

Lead applications

Worldwide 5-6 million tons of lead are used each year. The main application (60%) is the battery for for instance motor vehicles. Furthermore, lead is used in chemicals (for glass, glaze and PVC), roof covers (intermediate material, e.g. between wood and zinc), bullets, cable covers and counterweights. The metal also offers protection from radioactivity and radiation. Lead has many applications.

Lead recycling and scrap lead price determination

It is relatively easy to recycle lead because of its low melting point and the materials characteristics. When lead is melted, contaminations become visible and can be removed. Lead can be recycled for 100%, although there is some loss because of dissipative use in gasoline, paints, crystal glass, pvc, etc. If lead is absorbed into the blood it can be a danger to people, which is a disadvantage. Several articles about this subject have been published in the press recently. Currently, former (old) lead pipes are being replaced by pipes made of different material in many municipalities. Plumbing and maintenance companies working for these replacement projects are welcome to bring their scrap lead to Geelhoed.
