About Tin. Tin is a metallic element, with atomic number 50, a post-transition metal, member of group 14 of the periodic table. Tin figures among the oldest materials used by humans, with findings dating back to 3,500 B.C.E, with the first tin extraction mines opening around 1150 (C.E). Tin has great importance in the metal sphere, since it is an essential component in bronze, and it forms alloys with lead, copper, aluminum and others. The metal is soft, ductile and malleable, alongside its relatively low melting point, making tin an easy material to manipulate.

Tin Handling. Since Tin is produced in great quantity, it is usually shipped in railroad tank cars or by marine transportation. Because of its electrical conductivity, all equipment used in storage or transportation should be grounded. In storage and transportation, workers should wear personal protective equipment, besides, the workspace must ensure adequate ventilation and prevent fine dust generation as tin is a suspected carcinogen.

Tin Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Tin are listed below.

  • Tin ore (specially cassiterite concentrate + metallurgical coke smelting),
  • Scrap metals (recovery)

Tin Uses.The uses and applications of Tin may vary according to its specification. Usually, Tin is commercialized in the for of ingots (min. purity of 99.85%).
