Explosively Bonded Metals

Utilizing the explosive welding process, HEMI can join a wide variety of dissimilar metals with a metallurgical bond.  Our expertise allows us to bond most metals, either directly or utilizing interlayers.  Because explosive welding is a cold-weld process, the metals bond without losing their desired properties.

Some of HEMI’s more popular bonded metals include:

  • 300 Series stainless & 6061-T6 aluminum
  • 300 Series stainless & 5083 aluminum
  • 300 Series stainless & Copper & Cu alloys
  • 304L stainless & Glidcop™
  • Tungsten & Copper and copper alloys
  • 6061-T6 aluminum & Kovar
  • 316L stainless & 5086-H116 aluminum
  • Molybdenum & Copper and copper alloys
  • CP copper & Aluminum and Al alloys
  • And many, many others
