The technologically designated Cladded Pipes & Fittings are used in water, oil and gas industries, sub-sea applications and petrochemicals & refineries. Here, in cladding the weld metal is put on the surface of the work, as opposed to joining two pieces of material. Usually this is done for getting corrosion resistance or wear resistance. The materials we use while developing this range are carbon steel, stainless steel and low alloy steel. We employ two methods of cladding process one is by weld overlay, where we deposit weld metal on to component to achieve the desired dimension or properties replacing lost material or providing a wear or corrosion resistance surface and the other is explosion bond that is process of bonding two different materials with the help of pressure and heat produced by explosion.
