Alloys of tin
More than half of the tin produced in the world is used in the production of tinplate, which serves to make cans. But the alloys of this metal are also very popular today. In the printing house, for example, typographic fonts cast from a horta (alloy of tin, antimony and lead) are used. To date, there are more than ten thousand alloys, which are widely in demand in various industries. Development of aviation, automotive industry, motor industry. Is associated with the use of a huge number of bearings of different sizes — from fractions of a millimeter to a meter or more. To reduce the friction of the working surface of such bearings, materials with a minimum coefficient of friction and sufficient durability under operating conditions serve. One such material is babbit — an alloy of tin with lead, antimony and copper. This alloy produces a very large number of antifriction coatings, for example, for bearings of cars, locomotives, aircraft and other types of such rubbing parts.
Advantages of alloys
Tin with many other metals forms alloys that have earned great popularity in many industries. Tin alloys find the widest application in everyday life and in industry, thanks to their excellent resistance to moist air, water, acids and a number of aggressive environments. Tin forms stable alloys with calcium, magnesium, zirconium, titanium and other rare earth elements. A very popular alloy is also a tin alloy with aluminum. It is quite durable, easily accessible, economical, and most importantly, easy to handle at low temperatures. It has excellent corrosion resistance, has excellent heat and electrical conductivity, as well as high reflectivity. This alloy — a good substitute for babbitts and tin bronzes, serves in the laying of high voltage transmission lines, in the production of parts for aircraft, cars and rail transport.
The alloy of copper and tin has been used for many centuries — it is a real symbol of antiquity. Tin foundry bronzes are used in the production of reinforcement, bearings, and also in the manufacture of antifriction parts. Deformable alloys — tin bronzes are mainly made of secondary metal. Among the tin alloys, the most common were tin-phosphorite bronzes used in the production of membranes, metal nets, springs. Other alloys, for example, zinc-tin-lead bronze are widely used in the aviation and automotive industries.
