Tin Powders

We are a specialist supplier of Tin powders in a range of particle sizes which meet specific technical requirements such as Apparent Density, Specific Surface Area and purity. We manufacture Tin powders on site here in Rochdale which are sold into a number of markets and applications around the world.


Technical Description

Tin powders are manufactured by air-atomising using only high purity certified ingots and this results in a nodular or spheroidal morphology with particles available from 20 microns up to 200 microns. Properties and, therefore, uses vary with particle shape / size / surface area, purity and by carefully selecting the correct grade, Tin powders find applications in diverse markets and technologies.


Our Tin powders are characterised by:


  • High purity
  • Tight control of particle size
  • Low lead (Pb) content
  • Excellent reproducibility batch after batch
  • Available in a variety of UN-approved packaging options including 25kg sacks and steel drums (50-200kg).


Usage & Application

Tin powders are used in diverse applications, markets and technologies by virtue of their unique properties. Typical applications may include pressed and sintered components, bearings and bushings, metallurgical alloying, chemical processes, friction parts, surface engineering, decorative, welding and brazing, diamond tooling, electronics, radiation shielding, etc.
