ROSE alloys are low-temperature fusible alloys made from bismuth, tin and lead. For supplies of ROSE alloys, trust Metaconcept.
What is a ROSE alloy?
The ROSE alloy takes its name from the German pharmacist Valentin Rose The Elder (1736-1771). The pharmacist spent his entire life studying the various proportions of bismuth, lead and tin alloys. The results of his research were published posthumously in 1772.
ROSE alloys have a low melting point, between 94°C and 98°C. They are made up of 50% bismuth, 25 to 28% lead and 22 to 25% tin.
ROSE Alloy Use
This low melting point alloy, also known as a fusible alloy, is used in a variety of applications. Thanks to its low melting point, it can be used, for example, as a thermal fuse for the temporary holding or forming of parts. ROSE alloys are used in many fields, including optics, aeronautics and the manufacture of space parts.
