Composite Clad Metal Strip Improves Thermal Management and Connectivity

Photo by Venmark InternationalCustom engineered aluminum-copper composite clad metal strip for thermal management in electronics and nickel-aluminum for use in Li-ion and other battery systems have been introduced by Vincent Clad Metals. Vincent Clad Metal Strip metallurgically bonds two materials to exploit the best properties of each.  For example, aluminum-copper strip with thin copper clad onto aluminum, when fabricating heat fins and heat exchangers, reduces weight and cost while nickel-aluminum clad metal strip offers high weldability, corrosion resistance, and excellent conductivity for batteries.

Supplied in prototype through production quantities, Vincent Clad Metal Strip is available from 0.100” to 0.004” thick, can be slit from 0.122 inches to 7.0 inches , ±0.002 inches and meets or exceeds ASTM B248 special thickness tolerances, depending upon thickness and material.  Clad metal strip is non-porous and superior to electroplated products for stamping, forming, and fabricating.
