Tin - Tin is commonly known as tin plate and is commonly used in the automotive, electronics, and metalworking industries. It is used to create corrosion-resistant surfaces and is used in the making of solder to join two pieces of metal.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to Tin include discoloration, cracking, and swelling. The tin can cause the rubber to become discolored due to a reaction between the rubber and the tin. Cracking can occur due to the tin making the rubber brittle, resulting in cracking and tearing over time. Additionally, the rubber may swell due to the absorption of the tin, leading to deformation and a weakened bond between the rubber and the surface it is bonded to.
