The bonding together of dissimilar metals. A relatively thick layer (> 0.04″) of material applied by surfacing for the purpose of improving corrosion resistance. It is distinct from welding or gluing as a method to fasten the metals together. Cladding is often achieved by extruding two metals through a die as well as pressing or rolling sheets together under high pressure.
