Introduction of the Metal Clad Materials

The metal clad plate in large area is a new engineering material type which is processed with the high energy method of explosion cladding.


The clad materials are possessed of the special properties in corrosion resistance, heat resistance and erosion resistance of the cladding material, and of the strength and the rigidity of the mother plate in respect to the structural requirements.


The modern engineering design, manufacture and application need reasonable selection and use of the materials to optimize the design and improve the reliability of the products. The rupture test of engineering structure for the metal clad materials has medicated that the cracks are spread along the interface, even if it made structure-breaking . This is very important for the safety of the structure.


Thus, the materials selected are required to be possessed of excellent comprehensive performances and reasonable economy. The metal clad materials have embodied all these advantages. In terms of economy, the cladding materials have the advantage of smaller thickness and less cost as compared to monometallic materials. Metal clad plates are ideal engineering structural materials to be widely used in oil refining, petrochemical, chemical, aluminum electrolysis, light industry, foodstuff, seawater desalination, water conservancy and hydraulic power, nuclear power, high energy physics and environment protection.


The thickness ratio of mother layer to cladding layer of explosion metal clad materials is based on the requirements of the design and applications. The ratio of 3:1 or more is generally recommended. Large or small sizes of metal clad materials are available. Orders of any quantities are welcome with no limit of the minimum quantity. Metal clad materials with special sizes are also available through negotiations in order to meet the customers' needs.
