Processing and production of tin


Tin stone, also known as cassiterite, in the largest quantities produced in Spain, Italy, Mexico, China, Japan, Siberia and Finland. Fairly large deposits of tin ore were found on the territory of the United States. The production of tin goes through the following stages: ore-dressing; roasting;·sublimation;·smelting black tin;;·refining.There are 2 most common types of refining — electrolytic, and thermal. Refined tin grades of O1 and O2 is produced in accordance with the standards GOST 860−75.

The percentage of marks O1 and O2

Mark Fe S Cu As Pb Sb Bi Sn Impurities
O1 ≤0.009 ≤0.01 0.03 — 0.01 ≤0.01 ≤0.04 ≤0.015 ≤0.015 min 99.9 ≤0.1
O2 ≤0.02 ≤0.02 ≤0.03 ≤0.015 ≤0.25 ≤0.05 ≤0.05 min 99.565 ≤0.435

Cutting and processing

The metal is very soft and malleable material, perfectly bent, punched, and rolled. Drilling and cutting also do not cause special difficulties. Ductility to a large extent depend on the content of additional impurities (nitrogen, oxygen). The pure metal is characterized by good ductility, is easily the most different methods can be rolled to the thickness of the foil.
