Tin Electroplating Finish

Tin Plating is used extensively to protect both ferrous and nonferrous surfaces. Metals plated in Tin are useful for the electronic, automotive, appliance, computer, medical, and food processing industry since they are non-toxic, ductile and corrosion resistant. The excellent ductility of tin allows a coated base metal sheet to be formed into a variety of shapes without damage to the surface tin plating layer. Plating with Tin provides sacrificial protection for copper, nickel and other non-ferrous metals, but not for steel. Tin plating on copper has been shown to eliminate galvanic corrosion and formicary corrosion, commonly known as 'ant's nest' corrosion.

Tin is a malleable, ductile, highly crystalline, silvery-white metal. This metal resists corrosion from distilled, sea, or soft tap water, but can be attacked by strong acids, alkalis, and by acid salts.

Tin plating is widely used in the electronics industry because of its ability to protect the base metal from oxidation thus preserving its solderability.

Commercially, the metal is deposited in thicknesses ranging from 0.00005”- 0.0006”, depending upon the intended application and the corrosion protection required, the majority of which is 0.0001”-0.0003”, commonly known as “Commercial Tin
