Tin plated steel is a thin, cold-rolled low carbon steel sheet or a tape, both sides coated with pure tin. Thus, tin combines strength and ductility, and corrosion resistance, and ability to solder ability attractive tin. Production of the steel sheet and subsequent coating with tin are independent from each other processes, thus, steel with any set of properties that allows for the possibility of any tin coating thickness.


The composition of the steel used for the production of tin in a strictly controlled and selected depending on the steel grade and the processing method can be obtained by various types of tin (?tempers?) with different ductility. Tin has a thickness range from 0,18mm to 0,36mm and the mass surface coating of tin tin (front / rear) are as follows: 2.8 / 2.8; 5.6 / 5.6; 8.4 / 8.4; 2.8 / 5.6; 5.6 / 8.4; 2.8 / 8.4 g / m2. Each side of the steel sheet may be coated with a tin layer of different thickness (coating differential) depending on the requirements for the inner and outer surface of the primary end product - tin. A variety of surface finish tin (Bright roughness Ra 0,35 microns, Fine Stone with a shiny surface with improved quality and Ra = 0,25-0,45 microns, Stone with Ra = 0,35-0,6 mm) produced according to from where tin is used. Tinplate is subject to a special regime to stabilize the passivity the surface and improve its adhesion to the varnish. It is also covered by a very thin layer of oil (DOS), compatible with the food, the opportunity to improve its handling. The result of the manufacture of various types of sheet metal is a great choice for the end user.
