The origin of tinplate is from Bohemian, from 14th century, the people there began to produce tinplate. Also known as electrolytic tinplate, which stand for tin coating on the surface of cold rolled coil for preventing rust. The unique characteristics of tinplate steel decides its comprehensive range of application in international tinplate packaging industry. With the abundance extend of CC and DR steel material, and tin free steel, which enhance the development of technology of packaging industrialization, the innovation is ubiquitous in tinplate steel.
The feature of anti-oxidation, various kinds and beauty in printing enable tinplate enjoys widely usage in food can package, pharmaceutical package, daily application packing, apparatus package and industrial pack.
From the first food can to be produced in the year of 1810 in British, the development trend of tinplate has become thinner thickness and less tin coating to adjust the change of can industry and save cost.
To meet the requirement of international tinplate steel market, Mirach Metallurgy has engaged new development phase, and the innovation of quality development brings more market space for both Chinese domestic market and overseas tinplate market, from 2010, more than 80% volume from Mirach has been exported to international market.
