1.Structure of Tinplate Description
Electrolytic Tin Plate Coils and Sheets for Foods Metal Packaging, is one thin steel sheet with a coating of tin applied by electrolytic deposition. Tinplate made by this process is essentially a sandwich in which the central core is strip steel. This core is cleaned in a pickling solution and then fed through tanks containing electrolyte, where tin is deposited on both sides. As the strip passes between high-frequency electric induction coils, it is heated so that the tin coating melts and flows to form a lustrous coat.
2.Main Features of the Tinplate
Appearance – Electrolytic Tin Plate is characterized by its beautiful metallic luster. Products with various kinds of surface roughness are produced by selecting the surface finish of the substrate steel sheet.
Paintability and printability – Electrolytic Tin Plates have excellent paintability and printability. Printing is beautifully finished using various lacquers and inks.
Formability and strength – Electrolytic Tin Plates have got very good formability and strength. By selecting a proper temper grade, appropriate formability is obtained for different applications as well as the required strength after forming.
Corrosion resistance – Tinplate has got good corrosion resistance. By selecting a proper coating weight, appropriate corrosion resistance is obtained against container contents. Coated items should meet 24 hour 5 % salt spray requirement.
Solderability and weldability – Electrolytic Tin Plates can be joined both by soldering or welding. These properties of tinplate are used for making various types of cans.
Hygienic – Tin coating provides good and non toxic barrier properties to protect food products from impurities, bacteria, moisture, light and odours.
Safe – Tinplate being low weight and high strength makes food cans easy to ship and transport.
Eco friendly – Tinplate offers 100 % recyclability.
Tin is not good for low temperature applications since it changes structure and loses adhesion when exposed to temperatures below – 40 deg C.
