Electrolytic Tinplate (ETP)
Tinplate is a light gauge steel that is electrolytically coated with pure tin for enhanced corrosion protection. It is available in either a highly reflective bright surface, or as a non-reflective matte finish. Tinplate is highly formable and weldable, making it suitable for a wide range of canmaking technologies. Because of its corrosion resistance, a wide variety of food products can be packed in tinplate cans.
