Tin - a plastic soft metal silver-white color, resistant to oxidation. Due to these properties is widely used in industry as a protective coating. The main component of babbits, solders, bronzes, printing alloys, etc.
Most often, tin alloys are used as antifriction materials or solders. Antifriction materials allow to save machines and mechanisms, reducing friction losses; solders join metal parts. Among all antifriction alloys, babbits possess the best properties. Tin of all grades is produced in the form of pigs.
Tin is characterized by high corrosion resistance and ductility, easily rolled into very thin sheets and forms alloys with many metals.
Most often, tin alloys are used as antifriction materials or solders. The former allow to save machines and mechanisms, reducing friction losses; the second connect the metal parts.
Tin coatings have good adhesion to the substrate, provide good corrosion protection and beautiful appearance, which allows you to solve a variety of industrial and decorative problems. Melting point: 232°C.
In general, the anodes are used in the processes of electroplating of metals, modification of electrolytic solutions, electrolysis.
