Electro Tin

An acid tin process designed for barrel and rack applications, giving high purity deposits, which are uniformly bright with excellent solderability and fusing characteristics even after extended storage periods.

On brass, nickel is recommended as an undercoat, to stop zinc migration from the brass through the tin layer, having a detrimental effect on solderability.

We also Electro-tin aluminium busbar and components on our custom built automatic line, which involves a nickel plate undercoat.
