Clad Metals

Metal cladding is a process by which dissimilar layers of metals are bonded together. This is a metallurgical process which uses no adhesives or filler materials. It is accomplished through the use of extreme pressure and, in some cases, heat. The process can produce what are commonly called single clad (two layers) and double clad (three layers).

 

The manufacturing process have the capability of bonding dissimilar metals such as zirconium to stainless steel, zirconium to copper, titanium to copper and so on.
For example: copper titanium clad busbars are often used for cathodic protection.

 

Clad metals range of products

1. Non-ferrous metal clad plates series.        
2. Precious metals, refractory metals and alloy clad plates series.        
3. Multiple layer clad plates series.        
4. Metal clad tube plates and tube joint series.
