Description of key information

Additional information

Substance: Bullion lead

 

SIP description: “Lead, bullion" is a solid in massive form (at 20°C, 1013 hPa), produced by smelting primary and/or secondary lead-containing feeds and requiring subsequent refining. "Lead, bullion" is composed primarily of metallic lead and may contain other intermetallic phases (such as copper, tin, antimony, arsenic, bismuth).”

EC number/ EINECS No.

CAS No.

97808-88-3

Bullion lead is a metallic grey, odourless solid (at 20°C and 101.3 kPA) in massive form.

The density will vary according to the precise composition of the sample. The density of the tested sample was 10.92 g/cm3. The melting point is shown to be 278°C. The boiling point of the substance is > 600°C.

The water solubility test shows dissolution of metal ions although these results should be used with caution.  

There is no evidence of physical hazards in terms of (auto)flammability, explosivity and oxidizing properties.

Studies regarding vapour pressure, flash point, partition coefficient, surface tension and particle size distribution do not need to be conducted. Waivers are in place for all these endpoints.
