Tin Plating is a process that involves using electrode posits. It offers excellent solder ability, improves corrosion resistance, prevents galling of metal surfaces and has a low contact-resistance surface.
Tin plating is recognised for its softness and ductility during the stamping process. As tin is relatively low in cost, it is quite commonly used. An example of functional Tin Plating is that of electrical fittings, these tend to perform better in the conduction of electricity when assisted by a tin coating.
Parts are processed by either rack or barrel. Rack Plating for larger items and Barrel Plating for large quantities of small parts.
