Definitions for fusibility
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word fusibility
The ease with which a material will melt.
the quality of being fusible
Origin: [Cf. F. fusibilit.]
Fusibility is the ease with which a material will melt. Materials such as solder require a low melting point so that when heat is applied to a joint, the solder will melt before the materials being soldered melt, i.e. high fusibility. On the other hand, firebricks used for furnace linings only melt at very high temperatures and so have low fusibility. Materials that only melt at very high temperatures are called refractory materials.
