Overview: Metal Cladding Solutions
Metal Cladding Solutions
For more than five decades, the world has relied on NobelClad’s leadership and service in supplying trusted dissimilar metal cladding solutions to help solve demanding problems for the world’s industrial infrastructure. NobelClad bi-metallic plates are available in a wide array of compatible and non-compatible metals; with more than 260 metal combinations possible.
Welding Dissimilar Metals
Welding techniques are defined by material combination, size and fabricated application. Both explosion welding and roll bonding can guarantee:
- Solid state welding processes
- Metallurgical bond
- High mechanical strength
- Electrical conductivity
- Thermal conductivity
- Prevention of galvanic corrosion
- Weight savings
NobelClad plates come in all shapes and sizes. Components can be formed into small, precise shapes or they can come in large plates, heads or tube sheets.
No matter the geometry, the material won’t disbond while maintaining the mechanical properties of the composite material. These product offerings make NobelClad invaluable to complex design challenges.
Below are a few examples of applications that use clad across a wide range of industries:
- Coke Drums
- Rail Car Transition Joint
- Ship Building Components
- Molten Salt Separators
- Pressure Vessels
- Electrical Transition Joints
- Nuclear Components
- Heat Exchangers
WHAT METAL COMBINATIONS ARE POSSIBLE
NobelClad Case Studies
Oil & Gas Challenges
The production and transportation of sour oil and gas may require clad metal in pipeline fabrication to resist the most severe conditions. Historically, designers have been limited in choosing between two options in the production of metallurgically bonded clad induction bends: roll bond and weld overlay…
