the most comprehensive book on the subject, it covers historical aspects,
global market statistics and use patterns, basic principles of tin plating.
The various electrolyte types are covered in great depth incl. chemical
and electrochemical reactions occurring.
The properties of tin deposits incl. corrosion resistance and its protection
of commonly used substrates. A wide range of test procedures are detailed.
The effects of solution additives is explained.
Electroless tin deposition and tin alloy plating are exhaustively treated,
incl. lead-tin (solder) and tin-nickel and most other tin-containing alloys
capable of being electrodeposited. Whisker formation and tin pest are
explained. Post-treatment (passivation) of tin is reported. A section
on intermetallic compounds is included as also one on solderability.
The tin-plate industry receives extensive coverage with details of plant
construction & design and tinplate performance. Also included are
sections on relevant standards, analysis of tin baths, effluent treatment,
stripping of tin-containing coatings and the wide range of applications
for tin alloy coatings such as terne-plate, electronics applications.
Hundreds of Figures & line drawings, and many hundreds of references
make this the essential information source for everyone involved with
tin or tin-containing coatings, their deposition, properties and uses.
