Tin Electroplating

Tin is a silver-white metal with a comparatively good corrosion resistance. Due to its low melting point it has a very good solderability which is the main reason why it is applied in a wide range of industries such as the aerospace- and the automotive industry. As a result of its good conductivity in combination with the good solderability it is also used in the electrical industry. Because of it’s non-toxic properties, it is a common coating for food processing items.

Tin can be plated on materials such as steel, stainless steel, copper and copper alloys. The standard thickness for Tin Plating is between 5 and 30 µm but higher thicknesses are available if required.

Plating Capabilities

  • Rack and barrel plating available

Typical Applications Of Tin Electroplating

  • Applications where very good solderability as well as corrosion protection is required.
  • Food processing items
  • Electrical and electronic industry, where the combination of a good conductivity and a good solderability is required.
