Lead Channel

Cascade Metals Lead Channel by Cascade Metals

The traditional method of creating "leaded glass" uses lead came, which ages into a dark blue-gray patina. Lead is also inexpensive, durable and it is easier to cut and bend. Stretching the lead before use is necessary to obtain required strength factor. Special precautions should be taken when working with this metal came to avoid to lead contamination.

Cascade Lead's came is constructed from an alloy that is carefully and precisely made to result in a product that has a fine grain structure as well as high strength. 100% pure lead is mixed with exacting quantities of tin, antimony, copper and bismuth. The end product is 99% lead but now has the ability to be stretched to breaking point and still maintain a fine grain structure. The alloy also prevents oxidation, making it easier to solder with and allows for a long shelf life without forming discoloration.
