In an experiment, the improved Archimedes method was used to test and analyze density–temperature properties of Ga, Sb and Ga–Sb melts. The experimental results indicated that the density of Ga7Sb93 melt shows a linear trend of decline when its temperature changes within the experimental range, whereas the densities of Ga36.5Sb63.5 and Ga30Sb70 melts show a non-continuous change near the melting point, which rises first and then drops abnormally. These results were analyzed from the perspective of a liquid–liquid structure transition according to the property changes of Ga–Sb melt.
