SS Column Cladding
Stainless steel cladding is a technique that uses two dissimilar metals to create a strong bond. Its high corrosion resistance is advantageous in applications where there is a need for a strong, corrosion-resistant material. Because carbon steel is susceptible to corrosion, it is not recommended for large structures.
While the stainless cladding furnishes the necessary resistance to corrosion, abrasion, or oxidation, the backing material contributes struc- tural strength and improves the fabricability and thermal conductivity of the composite. Stainless- steel-clad metals can be produced in plate, strip, tube, rod, and wire form.
