Production of industrial tin parts


Tin is an alloy of copper and zinc that is frequently used in the electrical industry. Its properties depend to a large extent on the copper and zinc ratios, although its main characteristics include its mechanical and machinability properties.

Tin can be easily moulded and has good properties for hot stamping. It also stands out for its weldability and thermal conductivity. Because of all these benefits and its resistance to corrosion, it is usually employed in taps and pipes for water and other liquids, as well as in sheetmetal works and wires.

One of the most special characteristics of tin is that it generates no sparks from a metallic impact. This turns it into a crucial material for the manufacturing of packaging for use with flammable compounds.
