Explosion Welding

How It Works

DetaClad™, our explosion welding process, joins metal plates in a solid state while preserving the mechanical, electrical and corrosion properties of each metal. By detonating high-energy explosives, our process drives one metal into another, creating a strong metallurgical bond. 


Customers often turn to explosion welding to reliably clad steel with alloy metals, such as stainless steel, brass, nickel, silver, titanium or zirconium. Our explosion welded applications are made from a wide range of compatible and non-compatible metals. NobelClad is the only company in the world to deliver high shear and high tensile strength across the more than 260 metal combinations we join.
