Clad Products

Checon's cladding capabilities are able to provide cost effective material solutions, such as precious metal alloys, by combining the unique properties of two or more materials therefore optimizing the most desirable characteristics of each material. Product which may have originally been composed entirely from precious metal can be replaced with material which only has precious metal at the most critical locations.
