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 Materia

The most common material choices for metal cladding:

Stainless Steel: Steel coated with a thin layer of chromium oxide is often referred to as stainless steel.
Galvanized Steel: Galvanized steel is coated with a thin layer of zinc, similar to the chrome layer of stainless steel, to help prevent rust.
Weathering Steel: Often referred to as COR-TEN steel, weathering steel is designed to develop a protective layer over time for a consistent rust-like appearance.
Aluminum: Aluminum is naturally resistant to rusting or blistering, making it a popular cladding choice for contemporary projects.
Titanium: Titanium is favored by architects for its light weight, high strength and glossy, reflective appearance.
Zinc: Acclaimed for its weatherproof, corrosion-resistant properties, zinc is immune to the harmful effects of UV rays and even has self-healing properties that allow it to heal itself over time.
Copper: Another lightweight cladding option, copper is very durable compared to other materials and is also 100% recyclable at the end of the building's lifespan.
Brass: Balancing the cool tones of zinc and the warmth of copper, Brass is a highly malleable clad material ideal for decorative sheet metal work.

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。

Project Review-Kronos Sathorn Tower

Togen’s stone pattern aluminum roller coating panel was applied in the facade of this project, with four types of panels including flat shape, grooved shape, triangular shape, and checkered shape. Total area around 9000M2. The stone pattern on the surface of the aluminum panel is very realistic, even if you look closely, it is difficult to distinguish. Through Togen's superb processing and production, this building stands out among the surrounding areas, showing a high-level and elegant style.
