What is a tin alloy?

A tin alloy is an alloy that contains tin as the main component, but also other metals or non-metals, such as copper, lead, antimony, silver, or aluminum. The exact composition depends on the desired application and can vary depending on the application.

Tin alloys have a wide range of applications due to their properties. They are widely used in the electronics industry, where they are used for their excellent solderability and high resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Tin alloys are also used for the manufacture of dishes and cutlery, as well as for jewelry and decorative items.

Some tin alloys have special properties that make them suitable for specific applications. For example, tin can be alloyed with antimony and copper to make white metal for bearings and bushings, while an alloy of tin and silver is used for the manufacture of jewelry and silverware. An alloy of tin and lead is often used for soldering applications and for the manufacture of organ pipes.

What is Pewter?

Pewter (also tin) is an alloy that is mainly made of tin, but also contains other metals such as copper, antimony, and lead. The exact proportion of alloy components can vary depending on the intended use. In general, pewter contains a higher proportion of tin and less antimony and lead than white metal.

Pewter has a gray, matte color and is often used for the manufacture of dishes, cutlery, vases, lamps, and other decorative items. It is also used in jewelry making, where it is used as an alternative to more expensive precious metals such as gold and silver.

Pewter has the advantage of being easy to cast and process. It is also relatively inexpensive compared to other metals and still provides an attractive appearance and durability. Pewter, however, has the disadvantage of being prone to scratches and dents, and, if lead is present, is not suitable for use with food.

White metal - tin-based and lead-based bearing metals.

We offer both tin-based white metals and lead-based bearing metals according to common international standards such as EN ISO 4381, ASTM, AFNOR, BS, UNI, etc. or manufacture them according to your own specifications. We supply white metal alloys in delivery forms tailored to your production processes, whether it is centrifugal casting, static casting, or even soldering for bearing repair.

Tin sheet in two different, lead-free qualities.

As soft pure tin with at least 99.9% Sn or as a harder pewter alloy with the composition Sn95Sb4Cu1. Our Tin sheet is lead-free with Pb max. 0.04% and is used, among other things, in medical technology, as a filter in radiation technology, in organ building, or as an elegant surface for bar counters and countertops. Due to its low melting point and easy workability, the possible applications of Tin sheet are very diverse.
