ArcelorMittal Dofasco produces both single and double reduced tin mill products. Single Reduced product is cold rolled directly to the finished gauge, then annealed.
Double Reduced product is given a partial cold reduction to reach an intermediate gauge, then annealed and given another cold reduction to the final gauge. The resulting product is stiffer, harder, and stronger than single reduced, in some cases, allowing customers to utilize lighter gauge steel in their application.
Electrolytic Tin Plate is a Tin Mill Black Plate product which has been coated with tin by electrolytic deposition. It is furnished in a variety of tin coatings. Electrolytic Chromium Coated plate or Tin Free Steel is a Tin Mill Black Plate product which has been coated with metallic chrome overlaid with film of chrome oxide by electrolytic deposition. ECCS is only available with one standard coating which is equal on both sides.
Tin Mill Black Plate is a light gauge, low carbon, cold reduced steel intended for use in the non-tinned state, for prepainting, or for the production of other Tin Mill Products dependent on end use corrosion protection requirements.
