Surfaces can be kept protected using any type of protective material like powdered metal and/or foil, after bonding has occurred to turn it into a substrate post the application of heat along with significant amount(s) of pressure. This ensures that the particular surface is kept protected from the effects of corrosion and wear and tear and the whole protective process is quite easy on the pocket and very reliable in nature. 

Different types of metals can bond well with different types of other metals and/or composites during the carrying out of a number of important applications. This is referred to as Metal Cladding which is a process of protecting a particular surface (metal or composite) using the formation of a second protective layer of metal that sticks to the surface as a result of the process of diffusion or deformation or lasers. Metal Cladding is a process which allows for the metals to find use for them in different industries. 

The Different Uses Of Metal Cladding

Aluminum in wire form clad in copper finds heavy use in different electrical applications. The process allows the material to be produced at a very low cost but with high conductivity of electricity. Buildings and other structures are often subject to the ill effects of abrasion and/or corrosion. Metal Cladding comes in handy in these situations, as it works perfectly for protecting the metal against these problems. 

This process of surface protection has been used for quite some time now and one of the very first types of this process that found use in buildings and their construction was referred to as “Corrugated Sheeting”. This type of Metal Cladding was made use of in the construction of the walls and the roof(s) of the building being made. Metal Cladding also has a certain type of beauty about it and as a result a number of people prefer it being used on the structure(s) they own, in order to elevate the aesthetics of it. 

Metal Coating In Home Decor And Art

Through time, more and more people have started using this process to elevate the aesthetics of the structure(s) they own and as a result it has become a part of present Home Decor techniques. Metal Cladding allows for making a structure seem unique, not only by its looks, but also gives it a unique style. It can be used for structures with complex shapes. This is another added advantage when Metal Cladding is used on complex structures, as it not only protects the structure, but also gives it an edge in its beauty. 

These features have made for the process being used on and to create different pieces of art. Art created in assistance with the process of Metal Cladding always will have a distinct look that will make sure that it stands out. Moreover, it is a process which requires different types of materials to be used for the cladding function, on the basis of the surface to be applied on and the level of strength required in the resultant structure. 

For example, all types of Ceramic coating or Cladding (and a few types of Metallic Coating) are best performed using the method of the Laser beam. Post this method, a good amount of controlled has a lot of desired effects on the structure, bettering its micro-structure, by making sure to thermally affect only a very small area of the whole structure. 

Thus, the process is not only used to increase the structural stability of a particular structure, but to also give it a unique style. This allows for its heavy use in art, home decor, etc and with it’s huge list of extremely useful functions, Metal Cladding is seeing a huge increase in its demand, which is here to stay.
