Liquid Metal Alloy
metal alloy: Ga, In, Sn
( liquid )
This absolutely amazing metal is liquid at room temperature. Its melting temperature is 51°F!
It is an alloy of Gallium, Indium and Tin. We cannot call this 'Galinstan' because that is a trademark of another company - but this alloy is very similar to it and its properties. Unlike toxic Mercury, this liquid metal alloy is much safer to use.
It is being considered for use as a coolant in fusion reactors and other cutting edge physics applications and experiments. It does not exhibit the high surface tension of Mercury, so it does not 'bead up' like Mercury does. The surface tension of this alloy is very low. Because of this, it 'wets' glass and similar materials. It will form a mirror just by pouring some on glass, and is used in liquid metal telescopes. A fascinating material to experiment with.
We have a large amount of this material and can fill any need you have for it.
Supplied in stick-resistant HDPE bottles. Available in 10 gram, 20 gram, 50 gram, 100 gram and 1 Kg quantities.
