Definition of Metal Cladding

Metal cladding is a method of protecting one metal (or composite) by forming a layer of a second metal on its surface using techniques such as diffusion, deformation, and lasers. The advantage of cladding is that the process and material can be selected according to the needs of the application and the desired bond strength.

Metal Cladding Process

Metal cladding refers to the process of bonding a specific metal to another surface electrically, mechanically or through other high pressure and high temperature processes to provide double layer protection against the elements. Stronger, less ductile metals such as aluminum, steel and titanium can be fastened directly to the frame without any support. Other metals, such as copper, brass, zinc, etc., are not strong enough to hang independently and need to be supported by plywood or other frames so that they can be tied or fastened to them and hung individually.

Advantages of Metal Cladding

1. Durable
There is no better choice of cladding material than the durability of metal panels. The metal cladding is very strong and highly resistant to water damage, electrochemical reactions and corrosion. Overall, the metal panels have an impressive longevity while requiring little maintenance.

2. Wide range of styles and finishes
Metal cladding can dramatically change the overall appearance of a building. It comes in a variety of finishes and styles; including multiple color options.

3. Low maintenance
Compared to wood, stone and painted surfaces; metal cladding requires very little maintenance or repair work. Metal cladding is very resistant to harsh weather conditions, so it can usually be simply cleaned to maintain a good appearance.

4. Sustainable
Metal cladding panels can be made from post-consumer recycled products, making them environmentally friendly and reducing the amount of material that goes into landfills. 

Advantages of Metal Cladding

Types of Metal Cladding

Metal cladding is very durable and has a very long service life depending on the type of metal cladding. Walls can be finished in a variety of metals and technologies that provide excellent resistance and coverage to weather conditions, while being completely resistant to abrasion, UV rays and staining.

Types of metal cladding used for interior and exterior cladding are:
1,Zinc cladding
2,Cooper Cladding
3,Galvanized Steel Facade
4,Aluminum cladding
5,Brass cladding
6,bronze cladding
7,Titanium cladding

Types of Metal Cladding

Metal Cladding | The cladding refers to a layer of glass or other transparent material that is covered on the outside of the optical fiber core fiber carrying the light wave. It has a slightly lower refractive index than the core wire, so it can confine light to propagate in the core wire. There should also be an outer cladding outside the cladding.
For cladding step-type fibers, there are four basic parameters to be determined: the core and cladding radii and their relative indices of refraction. These parameters are determined by analyzing and observing the characteristics of the backscatter pattern of the clad fiber. However, the work of measuring these parameters by backscattering is much more difficult than the work of measuring the parameters of unclad fibers.
Light scattering is more complicated when a parallel beam is projected laterally onto a clad fiber. In this case, there are five types of backscattered rays, A, B, C, D, and E.
Among them, the E-rays are refracted rays that only propagate in the fiber cladding, and the B-rays are refracted rays that pass through the cladding and the fiber core. They have an important influence on the distribution of the backscattering pattern.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

One of the most crucial advantages to metal cladding panels is the added protection to the building. Metal cladding panels shields the internal building materials from the harsh elements and increases the mechanical stability of the structure.

Aluminium is a very popular material when it comes to metal cladding, being lightweight and malleable. This makes it very easy to use and reduces any concerns about placing heavy loads on the building structure or its foundations.

The four most commonly used metals for cladding are Steel, Aluminum, Zinc and Copper。
