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
"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.
