Also known as 'Cerro Bend' This alloy, one of the group of low melting point (fusible) alloys, based on Bismuth metal, is the most widely used in industry. One of its chief characteristics is expansion on solidification from the molten state, making it ideal for the support of thin-walled metal tube during bending operations. Tubes and piping can be bent to quite small radii without the risk of crimping, buckling or flattening the tube walls when bend alloy is used as a filling material for support to prevent distortion under the complex stresses imposed on the tube walls by the bending operation. A modified version of this tube bending process is widely used for bending extruded or fabricated open sections. Bend alloy cast around the section affords support and permits the metal to be bent like a solid bar without buckling or cross-sectional distortion. Other uses are detailed below.
