Introduction

TIN POWDERS are used extensively in the production of porous, self-lubricating bronze bearings and as constituents in soldering and brazing pastes and powders. Low-melting-point tin powders normally are produced by air atomization, although other methods of production such as chemical precipitation and electrodeposition have been used (Ref. 1). Tin powders also are used in powder metallurgy (P/M) structural parts, friction disks, clutches, brake linings, metal graphite brushes, diamond abrasive grinding wheels, bronze filters, peen plating, plasma arc spraying, chemical formulations, additives for rubber and plastics, chemical manufacturing, smokeless powder for pyrotechnics, and tin flake.
