Our Process

Follow our process below for a full understanding of Conforma Clad's production process.

The Conforma Clad process begins by mixing powdered tungsten carbide and other metals with organic binders, according to specific cladding formulas.

 

 

 

The materials are rolled to a predetermined thickness and density, forming a flexible cloth that maintains a uniform weight and readily conforms to complex geometries.

 

 

 

The cloth is then cut to shape and applied to metal components with a low temperature adhesive.

 

 

The clad component is placed in a furnace and heated above the melting point of the hardfacing alloy. The molten alloy wicks down into the layer of tungsten carbide particles, metallurgically bonding the hard particles to the component and forming the Conforma Clad cladding.

 

When brazing is complete, the components are finished to your specifications.
