  • Packaging steel - Blackplate

    Our track record in blackplate production spans several decades. Used as a proven substrate for our packaging steels, it delivers excellent shape, consistent dimensional tolerances and reliable mechanical properties.

    • Packaging recycling and education
      Raising the profile of steel packaging recycling is an important part of our work. Learn more about our workshops in primary, secondary schools and sixth form colleges in the UK focusing on packaging, steel and recycling.
    • Tinplate

      We supply a wide range of proven tinplate products for applications including DWI cans, easy-open ends and flow-brightened 3-piece cans.  We offer reliable product quality and short lead times to support your production demands.

    • Matching your needs

      We can supply blackplate to meet your requirements for a variety of products including packaging and engineering applications. It is available in a choice of grade, surface finish and width.

    Overview

     

    Our cold-rolled and annealed blackplate provides an excellent substrate for Tata Steel’s tinplate and tin-free (ECCS) packaging steels. We can also supply it direct to other customers for further processing – for drum production and applications including engineering and packaging.

    Choice of blackplate to suit your needs

    We manipulate the carbon and manganese levels in our blackplate steels to define final strengths for single reduced products. We also supply blackplate with metallurgies customised to material application. These include interstitial-free (IF) steel to provide very good drawing properties for bakeware, and nitrogenised steel to deliver the combination of strength and ductility required for easy-open ends.

    In addition to a choice of grades, we offer:

    a range of surface finishes – to suit your roughness requirements
    a choice of width – to suit your processes and support efficient production

    Reliable quality for efficient processing and product performance

    We have decades of experience in the manufacture of blackplate. Produced from Tata Steel’s hot-rolled coil, our traceable blackplate is manufactured with care and precision. Rigorous control of rolling and annealing processes means you can rely on the quality of our blackplate.

    Our blackplate delivers:

    excellent shape (low crown) and consistent dimensional tolerances – for efficient, repeatable processing
    reliable mechanical properties – meeting your requirements for strength, ductility and end-product performance

    Responsive service to suit your production demands

    The scale and flexibility of our manufacturing operations, coupled with our robust supply chain infrastructure, mean we can deliver in volume to meet your production demands.

    Our blackplate is available in coil or sheets. It is oiled for protection from damage and corrosion in transit.

    Our approachable experts are happy to advise you on the best blackplate products to meet your needs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
