If a Transformer were ever to be hit with some type of zombie disease of sorts, it'd look like this. Decaying almost.

I do believe that's what happens when you expose Aluminum to Mercury; chaos.

Radioactive radiation causes things to break down from one element to another, if this is Tin going through Alpha decay, it has lost two atoms, and become Cadmium.

Tbh, I don't really know.

But I guess it's like that:
Metals can have different structures (alpha and beta etc.), depending on temperature, pressure etc.
Apparently, this tin changed its structure from beta to alpha. In its alpha-form, tin apparently has way different physical characteristics, i.e. it breaks, gets brittle etc. This is why it doesn't stay in its solid block form, but falls apart.
