Abstract

WHITE METAL is a low-strength tin-antimony alloy with a solidus temperature of 246 C (475 F); its liquidus temperature is only a few degrees higher. Because of its attractive appearance, it has a long history of ornamental uses. It is used widely for making costume jewelry. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, tensile properties, and shear strength as well as fracture toughness and creep. It also includes information on casting, forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Sn-8. Producer or source: Tin alloy producers.
