Lead is one of the heaviest metals on the periodic table. Because of its density lead makes an exceptional material for ballast. Lead Ballast is used to provide weight distribution or as counterweight. Mayco can supply standard lead ballast bricks or large custom cast lead ballast weighing thousands of pounds. Mayco Ballast and Weights are available in numerous options to create virtually any shape and size to fit nearly any project. For more information, visit one of the Mayco lead ballast pages.
