THE ENVIRONMENT

What is tinplate, it is steel electro plated with tin to give it a reflective and printable layer.You can buy tinplate with different thickness of tin plating and different grades and tempers.We use the best materials and A grade tinplate.Tin is reusable again and again and can be 100% recyclable.Our material used in manufacture contains on average 33% recycled material, as no properties are lost in the recycling process.Recycled tins are smelted (turned in molten metal) and are used as tins again or steel for industrial or commercial use, such as the construction, fencing, and automotive industries.Tin is biodegradable and will eventually rust if kept in a damp environment or buried accidentally in a land fill site.

THE NICE THING ABOUT TINS.

Tins are rarely thrown away and you can often find them being used over and over again in the home as they do not easily lose their integral strength. Take a look around your home or office and you are bound to see tins used to store the odd nick knacks or food stuffs.

Aluminium is more expensive than tinplate and is valuable when recycling, we sell our scrap from production for hundreds of pounds. Like tinplate aluminium is 100% recyclable and is often reused in car parts and molded components.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW WHEN ORDERING MY OWN TIN?

Minimum order quantity is 3,000 units. Tins need to be ordered in multiples of 3,000 units i.e. 3,000, 6,000, 9,000 etc.

Lower volumes need to be gloss lacquered externally and all internal surfaces and base in gold lacquer

We need dimensions, printing requirements and approximate volumes to get you an accurate quote.

If a new tool is required we can produce a plastic protoype to test fill

We have a manufacturing tolerance in tins of +/- 10%
