Osmium

76Os


Osmium is a brittle, high-melting semi-precious metal of bluish tint, one of the densest there is. ACI Alloys can arc-cast pure osmium sputtering targets and evaporation pieces at 100% density, with lower oxygen content than the hot-pressed variety. We can also make many osmium alloys. See osmium in our "materials made" page for an idea of our capabilities--also try searching alphabetically on each of the element symbols in the material you are looking for.

The MSDS for osmium can be found here.
