ICS is manufacturing and supplying clad products for nearly all major electrical OEMs worldwide. Thanks to the skills and accumulated experience of its technical team and close interaction with its customers, ICS has designed unique clad solutions that enable end-users to achieve substantial savings and/or improved functionality. For many electrical application, ICS has replaced copper, brass or phosphors bronze components with clad solutions that meet conductivity requirements and provide superior strength/other mechanical properties. ICS also has clad solutions capable of providing electrical connection between conductors of different metals. Thanks to reliability and distinctive quality of our products, ICS is the preferred supplier for many of our customers.
Electrical grade clad has long been used as the incoming and outgoing terminal in residential and industrial circuit breakers.
Typical clad product by ICS: copper/steel/copper in layer ratio of 15/70/15, 10/80/10, 05/90/05, 03/94/03.
Typical clad product by ICS: copper/steel/copper in layer ratio of 20/60/20, 15/70/15, 10/80/10, 40/50/10.
Copper clad aluminum combines the light weight benefits of aluminum with the high electrical and thermal characteristics and excellent heat dissipation of copper and is with many applications in the electrical distribution market.
Typical clad product by ICS: copper/steel/copper in 15/70/15 and copper/ aluminum/copper in 15/70/15.
A silver plated bimetal plate with copper cladding on an aluminum conductor is used at all connection contacts in the busway where there is high current and high pressure. The outer contact surface of the connection plate is silver-plated copper and the inside surface is aluminum. The entire busway connection zone is silver to silver contact. Copper is placed only where it is required, ie, at the contacts. Fretting corrosion does not happen as the hardness of copper is much higher than that of aluminum.
Copper clad steel combines the physical attributes of steel and high conductivity for such applications as flat to canter lever-type springs or parts, fuse clips, connectors, terminals and circuit breakers.
Typical clad product by ICS: copper/aluminum/copper 15/70/15, copper/alloy steel/copper 15/70/15 and copper/steel/copper 15/70/15.
These shielding materials consists of a core material made out of either stainless or carbon steel or high-strength, low-allow steel cladded with copper on both sides. All of these options have properties ideally suited for the telephone wire and cable environment. The copper assists in reducing crosstalk and electrically protects the cable from lightning strikes or ground faults, while the steel’s strength increases resistance to gnawing rodents while also reducing cost by allowing for the use of thinner gauge material. These cladded shielding materials are good, cost-effective replacements for copper, bronze or coated aluminum shields as they offer both the excellent attenuations and mechanical properties that these industrial applications require.
Typical clad product by ICS: copper/alloy steel/copper 15/70/15.
For heat exchanger manufacturers, clad materials offer a cost-effective solution for use in variety of self-brazing applications. In such applications, these composite materials are formed and assembled in a manner that allows for the base material to become a structural or functional component in a heat exchanger assembly. These clad materials greatly simplify the manufacturing of the heat exchanger.
Typical clad product by ICS for heat exchangers include: copper/stainless in 6/94 layer ratio and copper/stainless/copper in 12/82/6.
Our clad product consisting different copper or its alloys as outer layer combined with high strength layer as inner layer provides excellent wear properties and strength applicable to many friction bearing applications.
Typical clad combinations: Two layer clad bronze and steel.
Coinage produced through clad metal can now be found in many different countries.
Features of clad coin material:
- Match the “look” and the “feel” of precious metals
- Matches resistivity/density required by coin handling machines ( i.e., vending machines)
- Provides high security in fail-safe testing in vending machines
- Corrosion and abrasion resistant
- Provides security against counterfeiting
- Maintains a gap between material value and face value
With our clad technology, various configurations of coinage materials are being produced. The ratio of the outer clad layer can be varied from 2% to 30%. The various combination we can clad for coinage includes:
-Nickel brass/nickel/nickel brass
