“Satan” has two As.

“Satin” is the fabric.

Statin has the same vowel sounds as the fabric satin, but it has the added t at the beginning, so it is easy to tell that it is pronounced differently than the other two words. You can find the pronunciation here

The first two have a short a sound, as in sat.

The third has a long a sound as in sated.

Maybe this will help

“Sateen” is the spelling of the fabric as far as I can tell.
Add to the mix seitan, the meaty vegetarian food popular in Asian and vegetarian diets.

Jeruba's avatar

Sateen is a fabric. Of the words on @RedDeerGuy1‘s list, satin is the fabric.

Correctly, stat-in, say-tan, sat-in. Statin, satan, satin.
