The tinplate

Family:

Iron metals.

Composition:

Mild steel with a carbon content of less than 0.08% and coated with a layer of tin.

Aspect:

Brilliant white.

properties:

This "sandwich" alloy of steel and tin has good hardness and guarantees high resistance to corrosion. Average electrical and thermal conductivity. It is a non-toxic alloy, which is why it is used massively in food packaging

Weak points:

Low compressive strength.

Oxidation:

Does not oxidize in the ambient air.

Fields of application of DIY:

Wire.
