What is the meaning of pewter?

Can it be translated by "estaño"?

The whole sentence is:

Because of its high resistance to corrosion, plating an incredibly thin layer of very expensive ruthenium onto a much less expensive base metal is more economical than using a solid mass of moderately expensive pewter.

Thanks a lot!
