Explosion Cladding of Lead on Steel

Milan Turňa, Jozef Ondruška, Zuzana Turňová


This work deals with explosion cladding of lead on steel. The welded materials and the Semtex S type explosive are characterised. The preparation of the welded materials and the proposed welding assembly are described. The welding parameters, the welding conditions and the fabrication of the weld overlays are discussed. The quality of the fabricated bimetals was studied by optical and electron microscopy and by mechanical tests.
