Product Description:

1.Structure of Electrolytic Tinplate in Sheets for Tin Cans Making 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 Electrolytic Tinplate in Sheets for Tin Cans Making


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.

Q:How many kinds of tinplate are there? What is the code number?
Tinplate is a tin covered with tin, it is not easy to rust, also known as tin iron. This kind of galvanized steel in a long time Chinese called "tin", some people think that the tin plate when the manufacture cans from Macao (English Macao for tinplate imports, readable) so called "tin". There are other statements, such as China used this lamp tin plate made of kerosene, shaped like a horse, so called "tin". The name "tinplate" is not exact. Therefore, in 1973, when the Chinese tin plate meeting was called "tinplate", the official document no longer used the name "tinplate".
Q:How can tinplate be identified?
The quality of tinplate is related to the final use.
Q:Tinplate why have white and yellow, tin plating should be white ah, yellow is how to return a responsibility?
Usually on the surface of a layer of oil, light oil, or iron; gold oil is golden; white is white, yellow magnetic, if printing, of course is yellow; usually tinplate can print color (color or 4C file).
Q:Raw material for zinc clad sheet? Can zinc clad plate replace tinplate?
Zinc is very active, outdoor corrosion is the surface after the formation of Zinc Oxide, do you dare to drink drinks containing Zinc Oxide, you see, you can replace the tinplate?
Q:Cookies with tinplate packaging has what advantage?
The decoration is exquisite: the metal material has good printing performance; the design trademark is bright and beautiful; the packaging container made by it is noticeable, and it is a kind of good sale packing.
Q:What is the difference between Maguchi Tetsu tinplate and galvanized board
Zinc plating on the surface of thin steel plates and steel strips by continuous hot dip plating prevents corrosion of the surface of thin steel plates and steel strips. Galvanized steel sheet and steel strip are widely used in machinery, light industry, construction, transportation, chemical industry, post and telecommunications and other industries.
Q:How big is the difference between tinplate and stainless steel 316L?
316L is a kind of austenitic stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance. The tinplate is not comparable. 316L is superior to tinplate in appearance, corrosion resistance, heat resistance and strength. Of course, the price is much higher than that of tinplate.
Q:What is tin plate?
Tinplate is a tin covered with tin, it is not easy to rust, also known as tin iron. Tinplate was most premature in Bohemia (now Czech and Slovakia). The land has been rich in metal since ancient times, advanced in technology, and know how to use water power in the manufacture of machinery, from fourteenth Century onwards began to produce tinplate. For a long time, it has been the main source of tinplate in the world. Tin was mainly used for making tableware and drinking utensils.
Q:What is tin plate
Tinplate is made of iron tin alloy and tin is plated. Mainly used in food packaging, tin cans production, because the tin steel strength and formability and corrosion resistance of tin soldering, and beautiful appearance with a material, corrosion resistant, non-toxic, high strength and good ductility properties.
Q:How to distinguish galvanized plate and tin plate
From the outside, hot galvanized, electro galvanized tin plate surface is rough, thick tin layer of light and bright, thin tin layer, hot galvanized galvanized is not only the contest, Matt
