What is Tin Plating?
Through a process of cleaning, prepping plating baths, electrodeposition and post-electroplating, tin is applied to many of today’s widely used metals – most common use is manufacturing of tin cans. Co-depositing tin with other alloys enhances plating process (i.e. lead-tin-copper, used in engines). There are several other methods of tin plating used at Commercial Plating Company, all of which can increase longevity of common metals.
The small amounts of tin currently found within the U.S. are in Alaska and California, although it’s the 49th most abundant Earth element.

Benefits of Tin Plating:
Many benefits of tin plating include:
- High conductivity
- Excellent solderability
- Lower cost than other metal processes
- Enhances corrosion protection when applied to metals
- Great décor value
Purposes of Tin Plating
Because the FDA frowns on placing food on corrosive metals during preparation, tin is electroplated to metals as it’s approved for food services. When an extra shine is needed on metals which will be publicly displayed, tin plating is used because it tends to shine well and requires less maintenance to keep the shine last longer. Also, because it’s conductive and abundant, it’s great for bus bars and electrical connectors which are traditionally low-costing tech. Finally, tin’s softness makes an excellent soldering component.
