Cheap Pewter Tankards

Cheap pewter tankards have become a popular choice amongst those looking for an affordable yet attractive gift for friends, family and co-workers. For those who are unaware, pewter is a metal alloy which is mainly made from tin. The remainder of the alloy is a mixture of bismuth, antimony, copper and sometimes silver. In the past, lead was used in pewter tankards wholesale, but most manufacturers today do not incorporate this metal. In fact, in the USA, it is actually illegal for lead to be incorporated into drinkware. In the UK, pewter should be free of lead or contain less than 0.05 per cent of it.

Why A Pewter Tankard Is Better Than Stainless Steel

For most people, the choice tends to be between cheap pewter tankards and stainless steel tankards. So, what makes the former a better choice? Well, there is no denying that stainless steel tankards are perfectly fine, but there are a number of reasons why pewter is the preferred choice. Not only is it attractive but it is practical and safe too. Moreover, unlike stainless steel, pewter’s resistance to corrosion does not depend on the thin surface layer, i.e. the passive surface. Therefore, pewter does not rust after becoming dented or scratched through years of enjoyment.
