In 1947, out of the 100,000 long tons of tin consumed in the United States, 25,000 tons went into solder. Tin plate took 39,000 tons while babbit, bronze and collapsible tubes accounted for approximately 17,000 tons. Solder ranked second to tin plate and required more than the next three major uses combined.
