Tin plating is a process used to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This process can be applied to many types of base metals, including steel, iron, and copper. Tin plating improves the appearance of these metals for certain applications, and also helps to increase their performance and durability.
Tin is used widely in the electronics industry because of its ductility and ability to not only offer protection to the component, but also to enable items to be soldered afterwards. Whilst not as successful as an electrical conductor as silver, tin is popular in many process industries, in particular food, because of its non-toxicity.
