Electrolytic Tinplate

Electrolytic tinplate sheet is also known as tin plate iron, tin-plated thin steel, and the English abbreviation is SPTE and ETP. Tinplate refers to cold-rolled low-carbon thin steel plate or steel strip coated with pure tin coating on both sides.

Tin coating plays a main and important role in preventing corrosion and rust. Electrolytic tinplate sheet have the strength and formability of steel, and have the corrosion resistance, tin solder-ability and beautiful appearance of the tin coating.

Product Application

Electrolytic tinplate have the characteristics of corrosion resistance, non-toxicity, high strength and good ductility.
Packaging made of tinplate has good sealing, storage, light repellency, robustness, and unique metal decorative charm, which determines its wide coverage in the packaging container industry, making it an internationally common packaging material.


Electrolytic tinplate is widely used as a packaging material for food and beverages, grease cans, chemical cans, and other miscellaneous cans, to provide excellent protection of the physical and chemical properties of the contents. Tinplate cans can be used to fill juice, coffee, tea, and sports drinks, as well as cola, soda, beer, and other beverages. High workability of tinplate allows for many variations in its shape, whether high, short, large, small, square, or round, which can meet the diverse needs of the beverage packaging and consumer preferences. For example, chemical cans,food cans, tea cans and oil bucket, etc.
