General description

The weight that lead provides makes it the ideal material for use as ballast or counterweight. The main advantage of using a lead shot, versus a piece of lead, is that it can practically be used as a liquid because it adapts to the container to be filled, thus allowing an easy material recovery for subsequent works.

At a rough estimate, it is considered that when using lead shots, the free space among balls reduces density to 7 g/cm3 instead of the usual 11.3g/cm3 of lead.
