Clad plates

Our roll-bonded plates and heads are used in chemical apparatus engineering and refineries, in the oil and gas industry, in oil sand processing (coke drums) and in the food industry. Clad plates are used in seawater desalination and flue gas desulfurization systems.

Materials

A roll-clad sheet or plate consists of a base and a coating layer material.

The basic materials for our clad plates come 100% from our own steel production in Linz. Cladding materials are purchased in the form of slabs and plates from renowned manufacturers.

The basic materials used are primarily structural steels, boiler and pressure vessel steels and fine-grained structural steels that are characterized by good weldability and workability.

As cladding materials, we supply ferritic and austenitic stainless steels, nickel and nickel-based alloys, copper and copper-nickel alloys that are characterized by their respective corrosion properties.

Further details can be found in the brochure linked below.

The surfaces of the base materials are usually supplied in as-rolled condition or are sandblasted.

The surface of the cladding material is usually ground. We supply ground with grain 80 as a standard. Further grindings can be supplied upon request.

Here you will find more detailed information about delivery conditions and certifications for clad plates.

voestalpine High-quality package

A high-quality package

We are a single-source supplier of shell plates, heads and cones made of plain carbon steel, in roll-bonded clad design and for sour service. 

Reduce the wall thickness of your componens by using our high-strength CrMo and CrMoV steel und chose your ideal plates dimension up to 200 mm in thickness and 24 tons per plate.

 

Cryogenic nickel plates

We offer 5%- and 9%-nickel steels according to EN 10028-4 and ASTM 553 in plate thickness range up to 70 mm, width up to 3,800 mm, length up to 12,700 mm and up to 13 tons per single plate. 

The revision of API Standard 620 in 2018 has made it possible to use ASTM steel grades A 645 Gr A and Gr B for the construction of ethylene, LPG or LNG tanks. Our state-of-the-art production facilities make it possible for us to manufacture both steel grades A 645 Gr A and Gr B as well as conventional 5% and 9% nickel steels.

voestalpine unsere Antwort auf Korrosion

Our answer to corrosion

Clad plates are the economic alternative to expensive high-alloy and non-clad plates. Roll-bonded clad plates are our answer to corrosion and explosion. 

With a cladding capacity of 60,000 tons a year, we are World´s leading producer of roll-bonded clad plates.

Broad range of expertise

We supply steel plates and material expertise for the penstocks of hydro-power stations and provide high-strength heavy plates as fine-grained steels with a minimum yield strength of 700 MPa in TMCP, direct-quenched and tempered or quenched and tempered condition. 

In a first-time application of high-strength TMCP steel, special-grade alform plate 700 M of voestalpine was successfully used in the penstock of the Reisseck pumped-storage hydro-power station in Austria.
