This is a 500g plus ball of 99.99% pure cadmium, this is how it is generally supplied to industry. It is a round heavy ball with a C embossed one side and a sprue where it was cut off the batch. These all have a very small amount of orange, yellow or white oxide on them, it will not affect alloying.
Cadmium is used for making low melting point alloys and various uses in chemistry and industry including corrosion resistant plating.
Please note= Cadmium is TOXIC, it will make you very sick if mishandled and you must always take great care with it, ALWAYS wear gloves and a dust mask and carefully decontaminate any items used to handle it. Melting this metal will produce highly toxic fumes, please don't do so unless you are set up and know what you are doing, always keep it as low a temperature as possible. Cadmium is also a serious environmental pollutant, don't buy it if you do not have the means to safely and legally dispose of any waste. This product is only available to Australian addresses, we cannot post this overseas as Cd is banned in many country's (silly as it is still a usefull element), please make sure your end use is safe and legal before you buy this product.
