KLS clad plate is a composite steel plate made by bonding one or both sides of carbon or low alloy steel (the base material) to stainless steel etc. KLS clad plate offers a cost effective solution for the construction, shipbuilding and manufacture of certain types of industrial tanks (including pressure vessels).
Common clad welding technologies
Explosion welding, which joins metal plates together in a solid state while retaining each metal’s mechanical, electrical and corrosion properties;
Roll bonding, which is a solid-state welding process that passes two or more metals through a pair of flat rollers to bond distinct metals;
Welding overlay which melts a cladding layer onto the surface of a similar metal to form a stronger base material.
Common Clad Materials
Clad metals most often consist of clad steel, which join steel or stainless steel with reactive metals and nickel, copper and aluminum alloys. Metal clad steel is then designed into cylinders, plates, tube sheets and transition joints used for products like heat exchangers, tanks, processing vessels, material-handling equipment, storage equipment and others.
Some examples of common clad metal combinations
• Copper Composite Panel: Copper on steel helps promote electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and facilitates soldering and is good for immersion heaters and electrical switch parts.
• Nickel on steel creates corrosion and erosion resistance for furnace parts, blowers and chemical equipment. It’s more durable than electroplating.
• Titanium Clad Steel Plate: Titanium on carbon steel ensures high-temperature corrosion resistance, which is particularly desirable for mining operations.
• Silver on copper provides oxidation resistance to surface of conductors, for high-frequency electrical coils, conductors, and braiding.
• Gold on copper creates chemical resistance to a low-cost base metal for chemical processing equipment.
KLS Clad Plate Features
The composite plate is a multi-layer plate covered with a thin layer of corrosion-resistant grade on the carbon or low alloy steel plate (back plate). Composite steel plates combine the necessary strength and heat resistance and corrosion resistance of structural materials (composite materials). In addition, it provides considerable economic benefits, because its cost is greatly lower than the plate made of overwriter materials.
Provide wider and longer size
A variety of metal cladding materials combinations
Excellent size accuracy with customised dimensions
Heat resistant, corrosion resistant, good impact resistance
Excellent adhesive characteristics and stable performance
Traditional wear -resistant materials that are shorter than usage are more cost-effective
Composite steel plates are composite clad plate, which is made of two or more metals. Typical composite materials on clad steel plate include stainless steel, nickel, copper, high nickel alloys and copper nickel alloys. Following you can combine the characteristics of each metal to produce better and higher performance products.
Benefits for heavy industry
Composite materials provide huge benefits for heavy industry and chemical processing, and composite materials can generate higher intensity at a lighter weight and lower cost. It can also produce excellent thermal conductivity and conductivity or corrosion resistance.
The composite board is not only very durable, but also has a huge manufacturing advantage. The composite board can cut and mold, including plasma cutting, stretching, bending and heat molding.
Clad plate structure
Metal clad plates consist of substrate and coating materials.
The basic materials used are mainly structural steel, boiler and pressure vessel steel, as well as fine crystal structure steel, which have good welding and processability.
As melting material, we provide iron and Austenite stainless steel, nickel and nickel-based alloy, copper and copper nickel alloys, titanium alloy, and they have their own corrosive properties.
