Explosive cladding is a cold-welding process for similar or dissimilar metals and alloys that produces a strong metallurgical bond and small interface. TPL 's Explosive Barrel Cladding development program used recovered/recycled energetic materials to explosively clad Tantalum (Ta) and its alloys to the interior bore of gun barrels to extend their service tube life. In Government tests u... Read more...More Product Announcements from TPL, Inc.
Design engineers are often faced with the dilemma of material selection, and frequently, they find that a combination of materials provides the optimal properties required by the design. SOURIAU PA&E's explosive bonding process can join otherwise incompatible materials without compromising other design elements. Read more...More Product Announcements from SOURIAU PA&E
