This remarkable alloy melts at just 60 oC but, unlike the most familiar low melting point alloys, does not contain lead or cadmium. It is a relatively hard and extremely tough alloy that has a wide variety of scientific and manufacturing applications. It is used for example to fill small tubes for bending without crushing, casting for models and jewellery, and for making precision moulds. Although relatively expensive because it has a high Indium content.
