Tin ( Sn - 231.9°c )


Tin is a silver-white metal, is malleable, somewhat ductile, and has a highly crystalline structure.
Tin's main uses are in tin plating, and in the manufacturing of chemical compounds, pipe organ are made of varying amounts of a tin/lead alloy, with 50%/50% being the most common. Tin is also used in solders for joining pipes or electric circuits,
Important tin alloys include soft solder, type metal, fusible metal, pewter, bronze, bell metal, babbitt metal, white metal, die casting alloy, and phosphor bronze, Tin is also used in the production of glass, where the glass is floated on a bath of Tin.

Tin's main uses are in tin plating, solder and in the manufacturing of chemical compounds
used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion
Alloys of tin are important, such as soft solder, pewter, bronze and phosphor bronze.
Tin salts sprayed onto glass are used to produce electrically conductive coatings.
Most window glass is made by floating molten glass on molten tin to produce a flat surface.
Recently, a tin-niobium alloy that is superconductive at very low temperatures has attracted interest.
