Lead buying

We buy all types of lead

Among the many non-ferrous metals we buy from RMC Polska Sp. z o.o. is lead.

Lead is a heavy metal with a silvery grey colour, relatively resistant to corrosion and oxidation It is soft and easily deformable, which makes it easy to form. It is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity.

Lead does not corrode because it forms a layer of lead oxide on the surface, protecting itself from further corrosion. However, it is reactive
in the presence of acids.

Lead types:

lead pure purchase

Pure lead

This is lead in its pure form. It can be found in bars, castings, and other pure lead components. The material must not be contaminated with other metals or organic or non-organic substances.

pokable lead purchase

Pokable lead

This is recycled cable lead. It may contain antimony in its composition. This lead must not be contaminated with any substances, other metals or be greasy. It may contain traces of paper.

lead purchase

Lead dirty and with jute

It is recycled cable lead. It is contaminated with tar, glue
and possibly jute (Jute is a stem fibre produced from a plant of the genus jute).
Lead with jute has a lower price than dirty lead.

Lead granulate

It is recycled lead from recycled cables. It is in the form of granules, flakes with a diameter of
2 to 5 mm. It may be contaminated with trace amounts of copper. It must not be contaminated with non-organic substances and must not be greasy.

Lead buying - price

The price at the lead scrap yard depends on the grade and the level of contamination.

Pure lead and post-cable lead are the most expensive. The cheapest is lead with jute.

The price of lead scrap also depends on the price of lead on the LME (London Metal Exchange) , the euro exchange rate and the demand for lead scrap in the market.

Lead - curiosities

Lead has one of the highest atomic weights of all the chemical elements, which means that it is significantly heavier than most other metals.
Traditional pencils do not contain lead, despite the name. In fact, they use graphite, but the name "pencil" has remained since the days when the core of a pencil was actually made of lead.
Lead is sometimes added to crystals, such as gem crystals, to increase their brilliance and transparency.
