Tin Anodes

We supply Ultra-Pure Tin products for specific applications where higher grades of tin are required. Our grade of tin is 99.99% purity, refined to the highest standards available in the world. This type of tin is used in specialty applications where standard grades of tin cannot be used. Ultra-Pure Tin has extremely low levels of lead, cadmium, antimony, and copper. All shipments come with a certificate of analysis from a state-of-the-art laboratory, to ensure you are being delivered a quality product.
