Clad Steel Plates – Roll Bonded Clad Plates

Clad Plates –Roll Bonded Clad Plates

A clad plate is a combination of two or more different metals, each chosen for its specific properties, metallurgically bonded to obtain an integral continuous single plate offering the benefits of both components. Generally, clad plates are produced by bond-rolling.

By combining for example a stainless steel with low alloy backer steel, it is possible to benefit from the mechanical properties of the backing material and the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel at a competitive price. Normally the backer metal is carbon-manganese steel, CrMo or other low alloy material and the cladding can be a stainless steel or a nickel base material.

Therefore, clad steel plate not only has sufficient strength required of structural materials (base metal) but provides other functions including resistance to heat and corrosion (cladding material) and is still lower in cost than similar products made entirely of the cladding material. 

Consequently, clad steel plate is used in a variety of industrial fields including shipbuilding, construction and manufacturing of various tanks.

A thin layer of expensive corrosion-resistant alloy provides excellent corrosion protection while the thicker but less expensive base-material of high-strength carbon steel ensures adequate structural strength. A metallurgical bond between the two materials is achieved in a computer-controlled hot-rolling process. Roll-bonded clad plates are the economic solution for corrosion resistant applications in refineries, oil and gas production, chemical industry as well as in sea-water desalination plants and flue-gas desulphurization units.
