Inlay Clads – Sophisticated Clad Metal Process

Inlays represent one of the most sophisticated uses of clad metals. This approach provides flexibility allowing diverse properties such as weldability, corrosion resistance, and conductivity at different locations to be incorporated into a single design. Inlayed Clad metal is widely used in demanding applications such as Automotive Hybrid Electronics, Power Conversion and

Through the use of inlayed composites, materials such as copper, bronze, nickel, stainless steel, carbon steel, and precious metals can be located precisely where needed while still allowing other critical characteristics to be designed into the product such as Heat Transfer, weldability, and spring properties.

Inlay cladding has many advantages over selective plating. First, the process allows for the use of more wrought alloys, and therefore more alloys can be used in the composite design than plating would allow. Inlay clads offer thicker porosity free ductile layers. Also, a surface can be attained that is denser, harder, and more wear resistant than a plated surface making them the best choice to be used in Critical High-Reliability applications and harsh environments.
