About Tin Plating
The tin plating process is used extensively to protect both ferrous and nonferrous surfaces. The excellent ductility of tin allows the tin coated parts to be formed into a variety of shapes without damage to the tin layer. It provides sacrificial protection for copper, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, excluding steel.
Tin is widely used in the electronics industry due to its ability to protect the base metal from oxidation thus preserving its solderability. It works well to prevent corrosion and provide a good clean contact surface.
