Tin Plating Industry Information

Tin Plating

Tin plating is the deposition of tin onto another material’s surface, both ferrous and non-ferrous, to provide increased protection from harsh conditions. Tin is defined as a silver-colored metallic element that is used in many alloys for its advantageous characteristics. Some of these beneficial characteristics of tin, particularly as a plating material, include non-toxicity, high ductility, and high corrosion resistance.

Quick links to Tin Plating Information

Applications of Tin Plating

The two most common materials tin is used as a protective coating for are nickel and copper. However, tin plating cannot be used as a protective coating for steel.

Tin plating is an essential process these industries:

Power Generation
For plating of machinery, such as power sub-stations, high-voltage connections, and power grounding.
Electronics
To increase conductivity of electronic devices, such as capacitors and printed circuit boards.
Industrial Manufacturing
For plating of parts requiring protection from harsh environmental factors.
Food Processing
In which tin plating is especially useful because it is not a toxic metal.

Process of Tin Plating

Tin is typically alloyed with other metals, such as lead or copper, before it is used for electroless plating to prevent tiny crystalline structures from occurring on the surface of the plated substance. The typical electroless plating process for tin includes immersion of the tin into an aqueous bath, in which several chemical reactions occur to enable the nickel to deposit a thin layer of material onto the desired ferrous or non-ferrous metal workpiece. Several chemical reactions occur because of the introduction of both a reactive agent and an accelerant. The reactive agent enables the deposition, while the accelerant removes any remnants of the reactive agent from the workpiece.

The electroless method of tin plating is different from the electrolytic method of tin plating. In the electrolytic method of tin plating, an electrical current is used to reduce the number of cations of tin from a solution. To begin the process, the part to be plated is considered to be the cathode of the circuit and, in certain methods, the anode is made of tin. Both the metal to be plated and the tin are immersed in an aqueous solution called an electrolyte. This solution contains one or more dissolved metallic salts in addition to other ions that permit electrical flow. A rectifier supplies a direct current (DC) to the anode, which allows oxidation of the tin to occur and then dissolve in the solution. At the cathode, the dissolved tin ions are reduced in the solution between the solution and the cathode, causing the deposition of a thin layer of tin onto the desired material.
