Properties of Lead Ballast

Lead has a higher specific gravity than, for example, concrete and steel. This makes it extremely suitable as ballast for a variety of applications. Uzimet produces lead ballast in sheets and blocks of various dimensions as well as customised, in accordance with NEN-EN 12588. Lead granules are also suitable for ballast (see other products) or can be cast in a mould.

Applications of Lead Ballast

  • Shipping
  • Bridges and cranes (counterweight)
  • Machines (stabilisation)

Uzimet also makes special moulds for the production of customised lead ballast.
