Tin is a pliable, soft, silvery-looking metal. The metal’s nature makes it hard for oxidation; therefore, it is resistant to corrosion due to its non-oxidated film coating. Whether it is exposed to soft water or seawater, Tin is still able to withstand corrosion. Also, it doesn’t corrode from string acids, acids salts, and alkalis.
Because of its nature to not corrode easily, tin ingots are perfect for making toys. Many toy manufacturing companies use Tin to coat the toy and have them have a silvery-white appearance. Besides making toys, Tin is also used in making steel containers for food canning and storage.
Apart from making items, the metal is used for many other purposes, such as soldering pipes and completing electrical circuits, bell metal, pewter, and dental amalgams. There are many more settings that use Tin for various purposes involving repair and manufacturing of silverware, heat exchangers, labeling items and packaging, electronics, etc. That is why there is a constant demand for Tin.
At Meta concept Group, we pride ourselves on providing Tin and other metals in constant use today. We supply Tin ingots in different ways of various sizes.
Our laminates have Tin, and we supply them in the form of discs, foils, plates, or sheets without or inclusive of incorporated fluxes. In our group, we can provide suitable external fluxes matching the properties of the items a manufacturing company is making. Here are some of the forms that some tin sheet metal suppliers provide Tin ingots in, including our group.
Tin sheets have a standard alloy used to make them, i.e., Sn97, Sb2.5, and Cu0.5. Tin in sheet form is usually used to make different things, and the shape allows designing and producing new items. Different toy shapes can be cuts from the sheets depending on the manufacturer.
The sheet tin has 500mm by 1000mm by 1.6mm. The size makes it viable to be transported in a cargo truck, especially the box trucks. But when in plenty, a single axle or tandem axle truck will be better because of the weight.
- Rolls or foil
The most common way of storing and transporting Tin metal is in rolls or foils. You can expect from us Meta concept Group various varieties of laminates in the shape of foils or rolls. Metal alloys that contain high lead in their composition are usually laminated using Tin up to 0.130 mm. in addition, alloys with more Tin content can produce up to 0.025 mm thick. From the size, a manufacturer gets more Tin laminates for coating toys and other playing kits.
Of course, for easy transportation and to factor in easy loading and to offload, the rolls have the maximum weight caped at 26 to 40 kg per roll and regarding the alloy in question. The required average width is 145 mm. a single roll of Tin is 150 mm thick with sheet thinness of 0.2 mm.
With enough experience in handling metal alloys, our teams understand the need for fast delivery and let your manufacturing ahead in market competitions. Count on us for the quality metal alloy delivery and other related things.
