Tin Prices Today, Price Chart and Forecast Analysis Provided by Procurement Resource

With the symbol Sn and atomic number 50, tin is a chemical element that appears as a silvery-coloured metal. Tin is quite a soft metal that can be cut with a slight force, and a tin bar can be bent with a little effort using the hands. When it is bent, the supposed “tin cry” sound can be heard due to the twinning in tin crystals. Such an attribute is also common in indium, cadmium, zinc, and mercury when in the solid state. Once the pure tin solidifies, it presents a mirror-like appearance like several metals. Besides, the metal hardens with a dull grey colour in nearly all tin alloys like pewter. The age-old usage of tin is in making alloys with lead as solder. These solders and mainly employed for joining pipes or electric circuits.

A large amount of tin produced is used as an alloy with other metals such as lead or zinc or as a protective coating. Tin is also used in the production of glass, bearing alloys, coatings for steel containers, solders for connecting pipes and electrical/electronic circuits, among other tin chemical uses. Due to its strong corrosion resistance, tin is used in plating, coating, and polishing. It is primarily used to shield against corrosion, oxidation, and erosion in the open air. Moreover, tin oxide, which has a +4-oxidation state, is helpful in making ceramic bodies obscure as a moderate abrasive and weighting agent for fabrics. Besides, tin compounds act as stabilisers in specific plastics and as wood additives.
