Cold rolled sheet steel (backplate) is electroplated with a layer of tin (tinplate) to protect it from corrosion. The strips of steel move at very high speeds in vertical or horizontal lines, with tight control over deposit characteristics to achieve high-quality tinplate for food packaging.
The primary application of tinplate is in the food packaging industry. Quality and cost control are necessary to maintain thin, dense, and uniform tin deposits.
