Tinning process is extensively used to protect both ferrous and non-ferrous surfaces.
Tin is ofter used in catering industry due to its non-toxic, ductile and corrosion ressistance.
The excellent ductility of tin allows a tin coated base metal sheet to be formed into variety of shapes without damage to the surface tin layer.
It is widely used as a protection for copper, nickel and other non-ferrous metals.
Due to its high conductivity and ability to protect the base metal from oxitation and preserving its solderability, it is very popular withing electronics industry.
