Measuring Hardness Test for Clad Metal & Composite Metals

Metal cladding techniques are often used to create an end product that has the necessary characteristics required for a specific application, for example, hardness to provide wear resistance.

Two or more layers of different metals are bonded tightly to each other. The combination of the contact material and the carrier are designed to provide the required resultant characteristics in the composite, unobtainable from a single metal.
