Tin Man Liquid Metal Paint 400ml Spray Can (ONLY AVAILABLE UK & EUROPE)
Tin is a pure chemical element with the chemical symbol Sn. Used as part of the first man made alloy, bronze, tin has been used along with copper since around 3000 BC. Tin was produced as a pure substance around 600 BC, it does not occur as natural substance and so must be extracted from ores hence the later date. Today, tin is used in many alloyed, most notably in solders, tin plating of steel and, due to its low toxicity, in food packaging. Historically, the metal's importance was one of the major reasons for the conquests of Britain, including the roman conquests, due to large tin deposits found in southern England and Wales. Today, most tin is mined in China, Indonesia and South America. At the current consumption rates, Earth's mineable tin will be used up in around 40 years. However, with tin usage going up by around 2% a year, deposits may run out even quicker.
Spray can coverage is around 7 sqft.
Brass is a metal alloy (in layman's terms a mixture) made of mainly copper and zinc. The actual amount of ingredients can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and depends on what the metal is being designed to do. Many brass mixtures will also include things like silicon or even arsenic! Brass has been used to make all manner of different things over the years due to its many useful properties. Its low friction quality is useful in lock and gear making as well as making it an ideal anti spark covering for ammunition shells and for tools used around explosive gases. And of course its excellent combination of high workability and durability has always made it first choice for musical instruments, where would we be without a good old fashioned brass band? It's also incredibly easy to recycle, with around 90% of all brass alloy being recycled and reformed.
Forms of brass have been thought to have been used since prehistoric times though the chemistry behind the alloys was not properly understood until after the medieval period when they were finally thought of as metals. There are references to brass in both the King James Bible and in Shakespearean English and before that the Romans the romans used it to mint some of their coinage.
