Tinplate Packaging testing
ITRI Innovation has considerable knowledge on tinplate for food packaging and is able to use this experience to solve tinplate packaging issues for companies from across the supply chain (material suppliers, lacquer producers, can makers, fillers and retailers).
The laboratory team provides independent verification of tinplate material specifications to international standards, such as EN10202. Analysis of tinplate can help to verify that the correct tin coating and chromium passivation coating weights have been applied, that the mechanical properties are within specifications and that dimensions and shape are within tolerances.
We can also help with investigating corrosion issues in tinplate cans, utilising a variety of testing techniques, supported by knowledge on tinplate gathered over 50 years in the International Tin Research Institute archive.
