Superior Family of Tin and Tin-Alloy Coatings for Electronics.

Technical Data Sheet - AnoTin    

AnoTin coatings offer readily-solderable deposits of varying melting points and excellent as-deposited luster. 

AnoTin Coating

Coating Characteristics
AnoTin AB Pure, bright tin deposit with aesthetic appearance suitable for exposed sheet metal parts.
AnoTin AM Pure, matte tin with best solderability and lowest carbon content.
AnoTin LB Brightened 60% tin / 40% lead with lowest melting point (360 F).
AnoTin LM Matte 60% tin /40% lead. Readily solderable to a high degree.
AnoTin LL Brightened 93% tin / 7 % lead alloy that prevents tin whiskers and reduces lead content.
Ano Tin IM Immersion tin deposit of 10 to 25 microinches thickness for coating copper, brass, and copper alloy parts.

These versatile tin and tin-alloy coatings exceed a wide range of industrial specifications as well as the following standard requirements:


AnoTin Type Gov't ASTM AMS
AB, AM MIL-T-10727 B 545 2408
LB, LM , LL MIL-P-81728 B 579 NA
IM MIL-T-81955 NA 2409

Anoplate performs routine solderability tests to ensure compliance with governing specifications, including Method 208 of MIL-STD-202. Carbon content of the deposit is analyzed as-required to minimize the co-deposition of organic matter (carbon) in the coating.

Thickness and composition are closely-controlled using X-ray fluorescence technology measured directly on your parts [see photo below].
