As a world leading manufacturer of packaging steel, thyssenkrupp produces tin-coated, chromium-coated and uncoated blackplate in thicknesses of 0.100 to 0.499 mm in its Rasselstein product range. Depending on customer requirements, the product Thinplate®, an even thinner high-end material but with the same properties, can additionally be painted or film-laminated. Our premium tinplate is used for example for the packaging of food, beverages, and chemical/technical products. Increasingly the material is also being employed in the construction, automobile and electronics sectors.
