    Direct relationships with producers.

    As a complement to tin and other base metals, bismuth is a minor metal that is used often by Nathan Trotter customers as a grain refiner in the foundry industry and as an environmentally friendly replacement for lead. Bismuth is also a common ingredient in low-melt and fusible alloys along with lead, tin, cadmium, and indium, and Nathan Trotter routinely produces the tin-bismuth eutectic 281 alloy.  Having cultivated relationships with producers in the top source regions of Korea, China, and South America, Nathan Trotter offers the most cost-competitive supply programs in the industry.
