An alloy of copper and tin with lead, often 60-70% copper, up to 2% nickel, up to 15% tin, and lead. The presence of lead, which remains free in the alloy as opposed to becoming part of the crystalline structure, increases the fluidity of the metal in its molten state and makes the casting of finely detailed objects easier. It is used as a bearing metal.
