Applications 

This material is ideal for making lead glass.  Depending on the glass, the benefit of using PbO in glass can be one or more of increasing the refractive index, decreasing the viscosity, increasing the electrical resistivity, and increasing  X-rays absorbption. Adding PbO to industrial ceramics (as well as glass) makes the materials more magnetically and electrically inert.
