Types of Clad Steel Plates

The Clad steel plate is a single steel or more than a variety of steel materials. For example: stainless steel Clad steel plate is a process of explosion, rolling or explosive rolling. The stainless steel plate and ordinary steel plate (carbon structural steel, low alloy high strength structural steel, High-quality carbon structural steel, etc.) Clad steel plate. It has the characteristics of two different steel types at the same time, not only the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, but also the advantages of low price and good rigidity of ordinary steel. The Clad steel plate is to protect the ordinary steel plate from rust, and can be coated with a layer of protective “coat” on the surface of the steel plate by plating, sticking and spraying methods to form a Clad steel plate.

There are many types of Clad steel plates, which can be divided into two categories according to their combination types, namely metal Clad steel plates and non-metallic Clad steel plates. Metal Clad steel plates are composited with other metal coatings on the surface of the steel plates, such as stainless steel Clad steel plates, titanium Clad steel plates, copper Clad steel plates and aluminum Clad steel plates. 

Non-metallic Clad steel plates are composed of base steel plates and viscoelastic resins with excellent vibration damping properties, such as lightweight Clad steel plates and vibration-damping Clad steel plates. Stainless steel clad steel plates and titanium clad steel plates are used to make various storage tanks, pressure vessels, seawater desalination equipment, etc. As a substitute for rare precious metals titanium and stainless steel, they have been widely used in chemical, atomic energy, marine development and other fields requiring corrosion resistance .

Patterned steel is a Clad steel in its original form. It is a single steel body without alloy components. It is made of semi-melted form, which uses stacking, hot forging or hot rolling, cold rolling, and morphological processing to control the internal density and joint of the material. The amount of carbon reaches the fusion of crystals of different size particles inside the steel! Due to the difference in internal density and carbon content, different levels of chemical and mechanical properties are realized, thus forming a composite test structure with internal performance differences!

Aluminum Clad steel plates are used to make conductive brackets for electromagnetic cooking pots and linear motors, making full use of aluminum’s good thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and ferromagnetic properties of steel; aluminum steel Clad plates are still required by household appliances, automotive industry and construction industry departments Corrosion-resistant complex material; the outer layer of the dual-hardness armor plate used in the military industry is made of high-hardness steel, the inner side is made of low-hardness steel Clad steel plate, the hard fabric is used to crush the steel core of the armor-piercing projectile, and the back surface material with good toughness is used to absorb The projectile impact energy does not rupture, showing excellent comprehensive mechanical properties; lightweight Clad steel plates and vibration-damping steel plates have been widely used in the automotive industry and aircraft manufacturing industry due to their high specific stiffness and vibration resistance.
