Design engineers are often faced with the dilemma of material selection, and frequently, they find that a combination of materials provides the optimal properties required by the design. PA&E's explosive bonding process can join otherwise incompatible materials without compromising other design elements.
Explosive Bonding of Materials
Materials can often exhibit good corrosive resistance, electrical conductivity, or thermal conductivity, yet be lacking in the strength, hardness, weld-ability, or wear resistance required by the final design.
PA&E has helped customers to achieve the "impossible" for more than 30 years with its innovative metal-to-ceramic, metal-to-composite, and metal-to-metal bonding solutions. PA&E's numerous "explosive" technologies such as Explosive Bonding can join otherwise incompatible materials without compromising other critical elements of the design.
