ABOUT ANTIMONY: Antimony is a lustrous gray strategic industrial mineral found in nature primarily as the sulfide mineral stibnite. Antimony compounds have been known since ancient times and were once used for cosmetics. Today, the largest applications for metallic antimony are as alloying material for lead and tin and for lead antimony plates in lead-acid batteries. Alloying lead and tin with antimony improves the properties of the alloys which are used in solders, bullets and plain bearings. Antimony compounds are prominent additives for chlorine- and bromine-containing fire retardants found in many commercial and domestic products. An emerging application is the use of antimony in microelectronics.
