  1. tin-plating

    Tin-plating is a process that involves the coating of a thin layer of tin on the surface of another metal, most commonly steel or copper, to protect it from corrosion and rusting, enhance solderability, or to provide a suitable surface for painting or bonding. This is often done through electroplating, a method that uses an electric current to dissolve the tin and bond it to the target surface. It is commonly used in the manufacturing of items like cans, cookware, and electrical components.
