American Elements Announces Expanded Bismuth Production to Meet Demand for Lead Free Bullets

Los Angeles, CA | Posted on October 6th, 2008

The new production capacity will affect deliveries beginning in October 2008. Recent changes in state and local laws requiring that lead-free projectiles be used for hunting game in certain restricted areas has increased demand for various forms of the metal, including shot, granules and needles. American Elements now offers all three in 99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% purities. For example, last December the California Department of Fish and Game modified its authorized methods for hunting certain big game including deer, bear and elk in its condor range to lead-free projectiles only.

The increased capacity will also expand American Elements' production of all its bismuth-related products including bismuth-containing alloys, bismuth oxide, other bismuth compounds, such as bismuth chloride, bismuth carbide and bismuth nitrate, nanomaterials, such bismuth oxide nanopowder and bismuth nanoparticles, and thin film coating materials for evaporation and deposition such as bismuth sputtering targets, bismuth rod, pellets and foil.
