Sn powder properties

Grey powder. Relative density 7.31; Melting point 231.89 ℃; The boiling point of 2507 ℃. Insoluble in water, soluble in dilute hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid. Tin reacts with both strong acids and bases. A protective layer of tin dioxide can be formed in the air. Tin can be dissolved by hot sulfuric acid in the presence of an oxidant. At high temperature, concentrated nitric acid has a strong corrosive effect on tin. Does not interact with dilute solutions of ammonium hydroxide and sodium carbonate. The powder can burn under high temperature and open flame.


Tin oxide powder preparation

Taking tin tetrachloride as raw material, it is purified by distillation, hydrolyzed to tin hydroxide, and then reduced by hydrogen gas to get high purity tin product.


Tin powder choice

The product has high purity, uniform particle size, ball shape, good dispersion, high oxidation temperature and good sintering shrinkage.


Sn powder application

1. Metal nano lubricating additive: add 0.1~1% nano tin powder to lubricating oil and grease, which can form self-lubricating and self-repairing film on the surface of friction pair in the process of friction, and significantly reduce the anti-wear and anti-friction performance of friction pair.


2. Activated sintering additive: nano-tin powder can greatly reduce the sintering temperature of powder unmetallurgy products and high temperature ceramic products in powder unmetallurgy.


3. Metal and non-metal surface conductive coating treatment: in the absence of oxygen conditions, below the temperature of the powder melting point coating, this technology can be used in the production of microelectronic devices.


Tin metal powder safety

Irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Misuse can cause acute gastroenteritis symptoms, long-term inhalation of tin fume, can cause benign tin foam in the lungs. Should be stored in a cool, dry, ventilated, avoid light in the warehouse, can not be stored with strong acid, alkali and flammable goods mixed transport. In the process of transportation to prevent rain, sun exposure. Handle with care during loading and unloading to prevent breakage of the packing bottle.
