Clad Plates - Pre Bonding Operation

Base Plates
  • The base plate is selected as per clients specification either from our stock or ordered on stockists / Mills.
  • ICEM stocks SA516GR60/65/70 N Plates of Western Europe origin in-house from 10mm to 100 mm thk.
  • The base plate is offered to TPI for stamping and subsequently cut as per desired sizes on CNC cutting machine.
Clad Sheets
  • ICEM stocks coils in SS 304/304L & 316/316L of Western Europe origin in 2000 mm width.
  • Coils are converted to desired Plate by de-coiler.
Clad Sheet Welding
  • ICEM has developed technique of double welders to weld 4mm sheets to arrest distortion and to achieve required flatness for good bonding.
Surface Preparation
  • Plate surfaces are ground or polished to achieve uniform white metal finish. Surface contaminants, oxides and impurities are cleaned by chemical process.
  • Clad Plates are positioned on above base Plates.
  • Base Plates and Clad Plates are Separated by Aluminium spacers of equal dimension.
  • Explosive are uniformly distributed on Clad Plate. Quantity of Explosive depends upon the thickness of Plates.
