  • Lead is a bluish-white lustrous metal. 
  • It is very soft, highly malleable, ductile, and a relatively poor conductor of electricity. 
  • It is very resistant to corrosion but tarnishes upon exposure to air. 
  • Lead pipes bearing the insignia of Roman emperors, used as drains from the baths, are still in service - and from that usage we derive our word "plumbing". 
  • The single most important commercial use of lead is in the manufacture of lead-acid storage batteries. 
  • It is also used in alloys such as fusible metals, antifriction metals, solder, and type metal. 
  • Shot lead is an alloy of lead, antimony, and arsenic. 
  • Lead is used for covering cables and as a lining for laboratory sinks, tanks, and the “chambers” in the lead-chamber process for the manufacture of sulfuric acid. 
  • Because it has excellent vibration-dampening characteristics, lead is often used to support heavy machinery and was used in the foundations of the Pan Am Building built over Grand Central Station in New York City. 
  • Lead is also employed as protective shielding against X rays and radiation from nuclear reactors. 
  • Lead isotopes are the end products of each of the three series of naturally occurring radioactive elements.
