Tinplate is a thin steel sheet coated by tin, while TFS is an electrolytic chrome plated steel consisting of a thin layer of chromium and a layer of chromium oxide deposited on the steel base. Both of them have a beautiful, metallic luster as well as excellent properties in corrosion resistance and paintability.

Applications of Tinplate and TFS:

Consumer         Packaging and        Industrial  Packaging

TINPALTE ETP is primarily used for packaging foodstuffs and beverages, but it is also used in containers for oils, grease, paints, polishes, chemicals and many other products. Aerosol containers and caps and closures are also made from ETP.
TFS TFS are most frequently used for can tops, screw and lug caps, snap and press-on closures and shallow-drawn food cans.


in Electronics Electrodes, Cable tape, Magnetic screen covers, etc.
in Engineering Automotive oil filters, Automotive air filters, Gaskets, etc.
in Construction Gas meter internal components, Heat exchangers, cookware, shelving, etc.
