Tin is a silvery white metal, malleable and ductile, with a highly
crystalline structure. It is due to this crystalline structure that it emits
a characteristic sound when bent known as tin cry. Due to its good
chemical resistance tin is used as a coating for metals to prevent corrosion
or other chemical action. As an alloying agent it is important in the
manufacture of soft solders, pewter and bronze. Tin salts are used to make
electrically conductive coatings such as those used for frost free wind
shields on cars.
