Our Alloy and Solder Products
Top UK Industrial Alloy and Solder Producer
WR Alloys and Solders supplies UK manufactured low melting point alloys, casting alloys, fusible and white metal alloys and anodes to customers around the world. All of our Alloys are manufactured in-house at our ISO 9001/14001 foundry in Birmingham, with detailed Certificates of Analysis available for all our products upon request.
Our metal alloys are ideal for a range of industries and we offer a variety of metal types such as tin alloys, silver alloys, nickel alloys, bismuth alloys, copper based alloys and pewter alloys. Our traders ensure that our alloys meet all customers’ requirements ranging from corrosion-resistance, magnetic properties & casting temperatures.
Solders are fusible metal alloys that are used in metal projects and structures. Our range includes, electrical, electronics, industrial & plumbing solder, both leaded & lead-free, all of which are available for immediate purchase through our Online Metal Shop.
What Are Alloys and Solders Used for?
Low Melting Point Alloys fall into a wide range of categories and uses;
Casting alloys, such as WRCast and WRCastV, are a range of low temperature alloys based on tin, lead or bismuth that are suitable for production of jewelry, models, figures, artwork, collectibles, ornaments and memorabilia.
Lead-free Pewter alloys, such as WR92Pewter and WR95, are popular for jewelry, artwork and collectibles where reproduction of fine detail and cast finish are important, as well as being safe for human contact . These alloys are commonly high in tin and alloyed with copper and antimony. As-cast finish is very good and cast objects polish very well to a silver luster.
For applications in which Lead can be tolerated, the range of alloys is extensive. Generally cheaper, these alloys can be tailor-made for specific purposes such as thin or bulky items, reproducing fine detail, malleability or achieving a particular surface finish. They commonly contain tin, lead and bismuth but may also contain antimony and zinc. In this range WR92L is one of our best sellers.
Fusible alloys, such as WR70 and WR137, are a range of metal alloys whose very low temperature, and often sharp, melting points allow these to be fused with ease. They are irreplaceable in a range of applications where their low melting point is fundamental, e.g: fusible plugs for boilers or pressure vessels, fusible safety devices for fire prevention such as sprinklers, tube and profile blending and lens blocking.
Having been a leading metal supplier since 1830, we have developed an international reputation in the metals trade. We service a global customer base, and our specialized in-house team work hard to provide quick lead times and tailored pricing solutions to meet our customer’s needs.
