Tin is easy to melt due to its soft consistency & has a silvery-white appearance. Due to how soft it is, tin is often combined with other metal alloys. Tin has a low toxicity level & a high resistance to corrosion, making it a popular choice for metal work.
Copper plating is sometimes called rose gold due to its similar appearance and can be used in more decorative settings. Copper plating is popular in cabinet and door hardware, architectural hardware & trims, store fixtures, furniture, & more.
