Frequently, material that would work the best for one specific element of the design is lacking in properties required by other elements of the design. For example, a material may exhibit good corrosive resistance, electrical conductivity, or thermal conductivity, yet be lacking in the strength, hardness, weldability, or wear resistance required by the final design.
Explosive bonding of metals allow design engineers to place a certain material exactly where they need it in the design, without compromising other critical design elements. Design engineers who utilize the principles of explosive bonded metals in their applications hold a distinct advantage over those who don't.
