our approach

1

design
  • No matter the timeline or dimensions of the project, each client gets our undivided attention, problem solving and expertise every step of the way.
  • We apply decades' worth of clad expertise to inform project specifications from stage one.
  • We proactively educate engineers and invest in R&D to propel innovation in new material combinations, plate configurations and applications.

2

execution
  • We work with suppliers from all over the world to source the best material to fit the customer’s price, delivery, source and material requirements.
  • All component metals require written certification of specification compliance and matching positive identification markings.
  • Large cladder sheets may be fabricated from multiple sheets by edge butt welding. Welding is automated and complies with ASME and PED Code requirements.
  • The explosive detonation is performed in either an underground chamber or remote outdoor location, providing noise and environmental control.
  • Automated ultrasonic inspection verifies bond quality and provides a permanent record. Flatness and dimensional compliance are confirmed. Code certification is provided for every plate.

delivery
  • With explosive clad welding facilities in Germany and the US, and sales and operations in EMEA and APAC, we invest in strategic locations to continually enhance our unparalleled dependability.
  • Our ability to ship high quantities of clad material is unrivaled.
  • Our expertise in shipping clad material internationally facilitates a smooth and seamless process through customs clearance.

guarantee

  • We are so confident in our clad that we offer a guarantee: When properly formed and fabricated, our products will not disbond or we will replace them for free.
