Tin Plating Services – Tin Deposit Properties

Tin plating offers strong electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and provides enhanced solderability of base metals that are not otherwise effectively soldered to.

Elkem offers tin plated wire in both bright (die-burnished) and matte electrodeposits.

The appearance of tin plating is very much a function of that of the bare wire. If the bare wire has a matte finish, the tin plating deposit will have more of a matte luster. If the bare wire has a bright finish, the tin plating will have a more lustrous appearance.
