Lead For Marine and Defence Applications

Due to the many practical and protective properties of lead, it is widely used for Defence and Marine applications.

We produce shielding, ballast and counterweights for vessels, both surface and sub-surface, vehicles and structures. From shot and molten lead filling to machined and coated bespoke panels, our products are in use throughout the world.

Standards, Capabilities and Alloys

At Royston Lead we have developed considerable insight into moulding and filling of impression blocks and target flanges, with the capability to manufacture to the highest standards of precision.

A wide range of sizes and lead alloys are available using zinc, copper, tin, antimony, calcium, silver and bismuth.

Due to the nature of ship construction we are routinely involved in working to project-specific requirements.
