Tin is a silvery blue-white metal in the plated condition. Tin can be applied on a variety of substrates. Tin plating is normally applied to a part to give it better solderiabilty properties. Because tin is non-toxic, it has also been a popular choice in the food handling and processing industry. Tin is, however, a soft material which exhibits limited wear resistance during continuous use. And even though it does not tarnish easily, it does have a tendency to discolor or tarnish with age. Tin is not good for low temperature applications, it changes structure and loses adhesion when exposed to temperatures below 40 C.
