Roll-bonded strips make to possible to use specialty metal economically in the thickness and width necessary for contact. Roll-bonded strips allow extensive freedom in the selection of the contact and base metal.

The contact metal can be selected according to aspects such as resistance to influences from the ambient atmosphere or abrasion resistance in the case of friction contact, and to select the base metal according to electrical conductivity, strength, spring bending strength or corrosion resistance. Good bending flexibility in the contact area. They have low inner stresses as compared with galvanic coatings. With this mode of manufacture, an optimum material structure is possible.

Clad metals offer the opportunity to combine desirable properties and/or characteristics of individual metals and alloys into a material “system” that provides improved characteristics over the individual metals:

 

  • Strength
  • Electrical Properties
  • Thermal Properties
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Density
  • Magnetic Properties
  • Wear Resistance
  • Formability
  • Weldability
  • Joinability
  • Brazability
  • Conservation
  • Cost Reduction
  • Appearance
  • Compatibility
  • Corrosion Resistance

Prototype samples availabile in two to four weeks
