More about tin plating and tin/lead plating
The electrodeposition of tin and tin/lead can enhance base materials by improving solderability of otherwise unsolderable parts. It also improves the corrosion resistance of corrosion-susceptible material. This can be important in a variety of applications, especially in the electrical connector and automotive industries.
Precious Plate also offers wide-stock plating for automotive and other industries that use tin plated coil-stock for subsequent stamping.
Tin Reflow Plating combats tin whiskers
To combat the issue of tin whiskers sometimes found with electroplated pure tin, Precious Plate offers a tin reflow process. Tin reflow is a proven tin whisker mitigation strategy.
