The clad plate is combined and processed by the explosion welding, which is widely used in the construction and manufacturing of the pressure vessel, heat exchanger, reactor, various tanks, etc. In order to get resistance to the corrosion, heat or wearing, the stainless steel (titanium, nickel & nickel alloy, copper & copper alloy, etc) cladding material is explosively welded to the relatively inexpensive carbon steel. One side has sufficient strength to the high pressure and the order side has excellent resistance performance to the heat and corrosion, what is more, the clad plate can decrease the constriction cost.

Packaging of clad plate:
Shanghai Metal Products are packed and labeled according to the regulations and customer's requests. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation. In addition, clear labels are tagged on the outside of the packages for easy identification of the product I. D. and quality information.
