Dissimilar Metal Bonding and Joining
We understand the joining of metals. We have a broad perspective on metal joining and have considerable experience in both explosion welding (EXW) and diffusion bonding.
Our bonds have been used in some of the highest man-made vacuums ever produced (1 x 10-14 Torr) and in the most difficult-to-seal applications (e.g. super-fluidic helium). Our components are used extensively in semiconductor fabrication, particle physics, medical, nuclear, cryogenic, oil and gas, and many other applications.
Much of what we do involves custom bimetallic solutions for OEMs. We work closely with engineers and product developers to understand your specific needs and ideal outcomes.
Often our EXW bond tensile strength exceeds the strength of the weaker of the two parent materials. Our explosion bonds also have a natural wave that increases the surface area, which in turn increases strength and heat transfer across the bond.
Our diffusion bonds are able to bond net-finished machined components with very little distortion or deformation. Please feel free to browse our extensive dissimilar metal blog that details the technical properties of our bonds.
