High Purity Lead Market to Exhibit Steadfast Expansion During 2018 - 2028.

[USPRwire, Tue Oct 16 2018] High Purity Lead Market: Definition and Introduction High purity lead refers to lead of 99.99% or greater purity. Lead is one of the oldest metals used by the human race with lead artifacts and structure dating back to 3000 BC. High purity lead is also known as refined lead. Lead occurs rarely in its natural state and is extracted from ores. Galena, Cerrusite and Anglesite are the three most important ores that are mined. These ores account for 95% of the production of high purity lead. The production of high purity lead from ores can be categorized in three broad stages. First, ore concentration is carried out using the froth floatation process to separate obtained concentrated lead ore from silicates and clays (gangue). The second stage of high purity lead production is smelting. The lead concentrate is mixed with limestone and filtered, then smelted in a blast furnace. The resulting molten lead produced from smelting is of 99.5% purity with miniscule impurities consisting of either antimony, silver or even gold, depending on the ore. The final stage for making high purity lead is refining. The lead obtained from smelting (also known as bullion lead) is refined through various processes to remove traces of other substances including arsenic, zinc, antimony, silver and gold. The final product is 99.99% pure lead and is referred to as high purity lead. Considering these aspects of high purity lead, the study of the trends and forecasts in the high purity lead market becomes an important read.
