Pliable, corrosion-resistant metal

What is Tin?

A slivery metal with high resistance to rust and corrosion. It is highly resistant to corrosion, so it’s often used on a coating over other metals like steel or aluminum.

Why choose it?

  • Resistant to rust and corrosion
  • Pliable, even at room temperature

Why not choose it?

  • Heavier than aluminum
  • Less efficient recycling process when compared to aluminum
  • It’s a rare metal, so it usually costs more than steel or aluminum
