Granulation, repulping and filtration of alkali solutions produced from lead refining.
Production output per year:
650 Sb tpa
- Since antimony increases the lead stability, their compounds are used to manufacture pipes for handling aggressive media.
- In alloys with other metals, antimony increases their hardness and oxidation resistance, making it useful in manufacturing cables and other articles, as well as for motor cars and tanks manufacturing.
- paints, enamel
- Being a highly thermally stable product, antimony oxide is added to heat-resistant paints and enamels.
