Hi everyone, How to make an alloy of Bi and Sb under vacuum?
I'm not sure how your set up is, but you would need to heat the antimony up to melting point before adding the bismuth or you'll end up burning it. I'd recommend doing it in either a ceramic or graphite crucible and making the bullion from that.
i don't have any setup. just want to know about.
Ceramic crucibles have heat tolerances, as long as you preheats the crucible before adding the antimony to melt he should be fine.
We use them to melt platinum in, which has a significantly higher melting point than antimony..
thanks for details :)
