Overlay Cladding Services

Overlay Cladding – Bonding of Up to 5 Dissimilar Material Layers

Overlay cladding is a process by which up to 5 dissimilar layers of material are bonded together through a cold bonding process. This process creates products with multiple performance advantages. The cladding of multiple metals into a single composite strip can provide the desired properties unique to a specific application.

As an example, a material system can be designed and manufactured using one material on the surface for corrosion resistance, weld ability or other benefits and a different core material for other specific properties such as thermal properties, electrical conductivity, and strength.

Benefits of Overlay Cladding

Clad Combination Benefit Application
Cu/Steel/Cu Conductivity/Strength/Cost Fuse clips, spring contacts
Structural Strength with Electric & Thermal conductivity
Cu/Stainless/Ni Conductivity/Strength/Corrosion Cell Batteries
Ni/Stainless/Ni
Cu/Al Cost; Weight; low contact resistivity; Thermal Characteristics High current carrying conductors, Busbars
Cu/ Ni or Ni/Cu/Ni Thermal; Weldability; Formability Li- Ion Battery
