Information @ a Glance

  • Tin is a chemical element with the symbol Sn and atomic number 50.
  • This silvery, malleable poor metal that is not easily oxidized in air and resists corrosion, is found in many alloys and is used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion.
  • Tin is obtained chiefly from the mineral cassiterite, where it occurs as an oxide. It can be alloyed with copper to make bronze.
  • The most important salt formed is stannous chloride, which has found use as a reducing agent and as a mordant in the calico printing process.
  • Electrically conductive coatings are produced when tin salts are sprayed onto glass.
  • Most metal pipes in a pipe organ are made of varying amounts of a tin/lead alloy.
  • The amount of tin in the pipe defines the pipe's tone, since tin is the most tonally resonant of all metals.
  • Window glass is most often made via floating molten glass on top of molten tin in order to make a flat surface.
  • Tin is also used in solders for joining pipes or electric circuits, in bearing alloys, in glass-making, and in a wide range of tin chemical applications.
  • Tin is added to some dental care products as stannous fluoride .
  • Tin is produced by reducing the ore with coal in a reverberatory furnace.
  • This metal is a relatively scarce element with an abundance in the Earth's crust of about 2 ppm, compared with 94 ppm for zinc, 63 ppm for copper, and 12 ppm for lead.
  • Tin acts as a catalyst when oxygen is in solution and helps accelerate chemical attack. Tin forms the dioxide SnO2 when it is heated in the presence of air. SnO2, in turn, is feebly acidic and forms stannate (SnO32-) salts with basic oxides.
  • Most secondary tin has been produced in the United States from various scrapped alloys of tin and recycled in those same alloy industries.
  • Reports indicated that China, the world’s leading tin producer from mine and smelter sources, was experiencing a steady rise in tin imports in 2005 as the supply of domestic tin concentrate remained tight.
