A fusible alloy is a metal alloy capable of being easily fused, i.e. easily meltable, at relatively low temperatures. Fusible alloys are commonly, but not necessarily, eutectic alloys.


From practical view, low melting alloys can be divided up into:


Fusible alloys are silvery-gray solids, though some are liquid at room temperature.


Safety and handling

Alloys containing lead,thallium and cadmium are very toxic, and should be handled with proper protection.
