A metal is generally considered to be a pure element which readily forms cations. Metals are characterised by their opacity and high thermal and electrical conductivities, the latter properties resulting from the delocalised and mobile nature of the electrons over the crystal structure.
Small particles with an approximately defined size range.
Those materials described as alloy precursors are not true alloys - they are made by sintering a blend of powders of the component metals to achieve alloying by diffusion. The resultant cake is ground and sieved to the required particle size range.
Unless otherwise stated, the particle sizes shown are for guidance only. We do not guarantee either any particular size distribution between the quoted minimum and maximum sizes, or a specific particle shape.
