Lead ii fluoride is a white solid that exhibits orthorhombic and cubic forms. It is a specialty product for proteomics research and has multiple uses in low melting glasses, glass coatings to reflect infrared rays, phosphors for television-tube screens and as a catalyst for the manufacture of picoline.
Optimally formulated to meet the desired performance specifications of a specific application, this is an excellent material for laboratory researchers and industrial manufacturers alike. It is available in a variety of volumes, including ultra high purity, high purity, submicron and nanopowder forms.
The most obvious use for lead ii fluoride is in the production of lead-containing compounds such as glass and ceramics. It is also a vital component in the manufacture of a wide variety of pharmaceuticals, paints, coatings and other products.
A small amount of lead ii fluoride can cause headaches, irritability, mood changes and reduced memory. In the short term, exposure may result in nausea and vomiting. In the long run, the most serious adverse effects are kidney and brain damage.
As with any chemical, the most effective way to avoid lead ii fluoride poisoning is to follow the manufacturer’s recommended handling instructions and wear appropriate personal protective equipment. A full face piece respirator and a good quality dust mask are critical.
Most importantly, the best way to protect your health is to consult a medical professional. This chemical should not be used by those with chronic or acute illnesses, those who are pregnant or nursing, children under the age of six, and anyone without the proper training.
