Cladding Conference

Cladding Banner

Cladding is a welding procedure that puts weld metal on the surface of the work, as opposed to joining two pieces of material. The use of cladding to protect structures from corrosion is growing by leaps and bounds.

Weld cladding is a cost effective way to prepare structures and piping for applications such as sour gas, chemical reactors and storage vessels, high temperature power generation equipment, transition joints, and repair. Topics include hot-wire weld cladding, roll bonding, explosive cladding, nanocomposite material, strip cladding, the role of lasers, new materials and more that make cladding a competitive solution.
