Doubles tinplate capacity at Tarapur to 5 lakh metric tonnesJSW Steel began the roll-out of JSW Platina, premium tinplate targeted at packaging industry. The launch of JSW Platina enables JSW Steel to tap the growing opportunity for tinplate products demanded by India's packaging industry.
India is one of the countries that have pledged to eliminate single use plastics by 2022. JSW Platina offers a significant opportunity to become the most preferred & sustainable packaging material for the future.
JSW Steel currently has annual cumulative installed capacity of 3.5 lakh metric tonnes tinplate, out of which 1 Lakh metric tonnes is being produced by its JV ( JSW Vallabh Tinplate) and the balance 2.5 lakh metric tonnes at its newly established tinplate facility at Tarapur in Maharastra. Given the significant potential for JSW Platina to emerge as a preferred packaging material, JSW Steel is doubling its tinplate capacity at Tarapur to 5 Lakh metric tonnes.
JSW Platina has a wide variety of applications in both food and non-food packaging. It is available as Tinplate or Tin Free Steel (TFS) in both Single Reduced (SR) and Double Reduced (DR) variety. Double Reduced (DR) product is normally Thinner, Stronger, and Brighter, as compared to conventional Single Reduced Tinplate and gives more cans from each ton without compromising strength. Since different applications of JSW Platina requires different degree of hardness for base material, the desired hardness is achieved through a complex process involving Annealing and temper rolling mill/double cold rolling mill conforming to the globally accepted standards. JSW Platina has versatile applicability as a packaging material ranging from Food cans, juices, Coffee Cans, Edible Oils, Ghee and Vanaspati to battery, aerosol cans and crown corks and many others.
