Excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. Heavy metal. Particularly malleable. Resistance to cold corrosion in wet environments. Perfect for alloys.
Does not resist acid attacks. Tendency to tarnish. Contact with tin oxide can cause irritation.
Tin oxide (protective coating against corrosion).
Fields of application of DIY:
Raw material for making welds. For tinning (cover with a layer of tin to ensure electrical conductivity). Very aesthetic, he also used a lot in decoration.
Tinning and welding.
Easy. It polishes once or twice a year, to find its brilliant.
