As a result a difficult for the hot lead plating units task of ensuring quality adhesion of a coating from the Pb-Sn melt to steel base was solved, it became possible to reduce content of stannum in the alloy from 15 to 8 %, more uniform fine crystalline structure of the alloy with minimal amount of pinholes was achieved, and duration of etching was reduced from 45 to 3-5 s.
