Midwest Plating Company in St. Louis, MO offers both a matte and bright finish on its tin plating. Electroplating is a process that applies a top coat to electrical connectors—providing exceptional corrosion protection. Depending on your business needs, each finish has its own qualities:
Matte Tin Plating
- Dull, white finish
- 100% pure tin
- Retains original color under high temperatures
- Typical plating thickness is 200 – 350 microinches and can be tailored to meet customer specifications
- Contains relatively few additives
- Larger grain size than bright tin
- Most ideal for lead-free soldering processes that use higher temperatures
- Recommended for electronics components when possible
- Can accommodate sizes up to 150″
Midwest currently runs two rack plating lines for larger parts and a barrel line for smaller parts.
