Selective Tin Plating



(-----) 2006

Hi everybody,

One of my older school colleagues came up to me with the following question:
Selective distribution of tin on a common steel base (tube form), approx. area which has to be plated is 50-70mm, there's (yet) ;-) no other requirements. They have a huge plating line, but no tin process integrated.
Anybody ideas how to realize (hot tin, chemical tin, electro chemical tin)?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Dominik. You are correct that any of the three may be applicable. Partial immersion is in wide practice in both hot dipping and electroplating; selective masking may also be reasonable, and brush plating may be a good option. But the early decisions are the most important ones, and your friend really should hire an experienced consultant before making a commitment down the wrong track.
