Tin plating is carried out on mechanical and electromechanical components. Tin plating is an electroplating process that puts a characteristic white finish on treated surfaces and provides a good level of resistance to water, atmospheric agents and various other substances and solutions.
Tin plating is used for industrial purposes where resistance to corrosion and oxidation is required; it offers good protection against moderate stress and has good weldability and electrical conductivity.
Tin plating is also used for decorative purposes because it always retains its characteristic white colour even in contact with humidity. It is used where a shiny, opaque and antiqued aesthetic appearance is required.
