The Advantages of Tin
Tin has many uses. You may be familiar with some of its most common alloys: pewter and bronze, but did you know tin has many more uses?
One of tin’s foremost applications is as a corrosion resistant plating. What we call “tin cans” are in fact steel cans coated in tin, and the same principle applies to tin plated perforated sheets and panels.
Tin is ductile and malleable and is soft enough to be worked cold. It has a relatively low melting point, meaning it works great as coating or plating with other metals.
Additionally, tin polishes very well. Ever notice how shiny the inside of a can is? Tin plate is a great choice for applications where corrosion resistance and aesthetics are concerned.
