Antimony: uses

The following uses for antimony are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. I would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.

  • used in semiconductor technology for making infrared detectors, diodes, and Hall-effect devices
  • used in alloys with percentages ranging from 1 to 20 - greatly increases the hardness and mechanical strength of lead
  • batteries, antifriction alloys, type metal, small arms and tracer bullets, cable sheathing, and minor products use about half the metal produced
  • oxides, sulphides, sodium antimonate, and antimony trichloride are used in manufacturing flame-proofing compounds, paints, ceramic enamels, glass, and pottery.
  • tartar emetic (hydrated potassium antimonyltartate) is used in medicine
