Gallium Copper Alloy

We've been wanting to add gallium to our collection for a while.  It is a good fit for our product line as it is also a rare metal with a myriad of industrial uses but there is one problem.  It has a melting point of just 85.6 degrees fahrenheit which means our ingot would likely melt during shipping in Summer months and would certainly melt in your hand.  An alloy with only 5% copper will bring the melting point to over 300 degrees fahrenheit. Each ingot will have about 32 grams of 4N (or 99.99% pure) gallium in addition to about 1.6 grams of 4N copper, giving each ingot little over one troy ounce of pure gallium.  We hope to have these available this September.
