The aim of the project

is to develop new materials obtained by plating (connect) at least two different metals with use of explosives. The developed materials will be applied in all kinds of geothermal infrastructure components such as tanks and pipelines. Explosive cladding is one of the most modern methods of manufacture of protective coatings. This novel technique allows obtaining materials with unique properties such as strength and resistance to degradation.



Development of explosive welding technology of innovative clad coatings.


Evaluation of corrosion resistance of the innovative clad coatings.


Characterisation of microstructure and properties of the innovative clad coatings.


Project Management and Result Dissemination & Exploitation.
