Reflow of Plated Matt Tin
I need to reflow plated 100% matt tin to a shiny condition. Could anyone offer some opinion?
Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia
We used to manufacture a large range of tinned goods which were reflowed to give a bright finish. It was a long time ago but I remember using Shell Peblum grease at approx. 10% by weight in Shell Cornea Oil with a temperature of about 240 C. WE also controlled the acidity of the mix by adding more Peblum as the acidity fell in use. Best reference is the Tin Research Institute in the UK who did publish a booklet on reflowing.
