Clad Metals

Clad metals utilize the technology of roll bonding dissimilar metals. The advantage of clad materials is that the end product combines the superior properties of each metal - strength, thermal and electric conductivity, corrosion resistance, lightweight and lower cost - to produce a material superior to that of any of the individual metals taken alone.

Clad metals combine two or more metals into a single sheet or plate that can be cut, welded or formed into a finished part ranging from expensive gourmet cookware to large chemical processing chambers or pressure vessels. In all cases, clad metals provide combinations of properties and advantages not available in monolithic metals. Because of the new properties offered by clad metals, and the wide variety of cladding and backing materials available today, these metals can be combined into different combinations to make custom materials for a wide range of demanding industries, including health, chemical and petroleum processing paper and pulp, food and food processing. KEYWORDS for this process: Cladding, metal cladding, hardfacing
