Benefits of Tin Plating
- Tin is malleable and very soft. That means that it can be transformed without it cracking.
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Highly tarnish resistant
- Good electrical conductor
- Non toxic
- Good solderability
What is Tin Plating Used For?
Tin plating is equally useful within a number of other industries too; including power distribution and transmission, telecommunications, medical, marine and aerospace.
Tin in the Food Processing Industry
Tin is a useful metal for the food processing industry because it is non-toxic, corrosion resistant and ductile.
It be used to plate parts made from steel or iron in order to prevent rust and make them safe for food handling and storage, for example, tin cans.
Tin is very soft and ductile, so parts that are plated with tin can be stamped, bent, and formed into various shapes without damaging the layer of tin. Also, the tin often acts as a lubricant during these operations.
Tin the Electronics Industry
Tin is often used in the electronics industry because of its ability to protect the base metal from oxidation. This, therefore, preserves its solderability.
