What is Tin Electroplating?

The Tin Electroplating process, intended for engineering purposes, is used for corrosion protection, to facilitate soldering, to improve anti-galling characteristics, and as a stop of barrier in the nitrating of high-strength steels. It is commonly used in industries such as: military, automotive, aerospace, and electrical. 

Tin has a white-gray appearance and can be anywhere from matte to bright. It is a non-toxic, soft and very ductile, but not good in low temperature applications.

Tin plating is RoHS compliant.
