The phase diagram of the ternary Ni-Pb-Sb system was investigated experimentally by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS) methods, and predicted using the calculation of phase diagrams (CALPHAD) method. The phase transition temperatures of alloys along three predicted vertical sections of the Ni-Pb-Sb ternary system, with molar ratio Ni : Sb = 1: 3, Ni : Pb = 1, and x(Sb) = 0.6, were measured by DSC. The predicted isothermal section at 700 degrees C was compared with the results of the SEM-EDS analysis in this work.
