Home Resource Center Product Data and Related Literature Clad Metals Clad Metal Product Data and Related Literature Find product data and related literature for Clad and Dovetail Clad® metals. Information includes data sheets and tech updates for aluminum inlays and eStainless® clad structural and thermal materials. If you don't see the information you need, please contact us for further assistance. eStainless® Clad Data Sheet eStainless Clad - Structural heat spreader materials for lighter, cooler and thinner electronics. eStainless Steel Product Brief eStainless® steels from Materion are a stainless steel alternative for thermal management in consumer electronics. They combine the structural performance of steel with the conductivity of copper or aluminum to enable effective heat spreading without adding volume to a device. Dovetail Clad Metal Data Sheet Dovetail Clad Metal - A side-by-side clad strip of copper and aluminum that offers low electrical impedance, increased strength, and high life testing reliability for electric and hybrid vehicle batteries. Thick Inlay & Dovetail Clad Data Sheet Thick Inlay Clad - For partial penetration laser welding, we can provide a thick inlay solution that selectively clads a stripe of copper or aluminum, up to 50% of the metal substrate thickness. High Strength Aluminum for Wire Bondable Lead Frames Data Sheet High Strength Aluminum – An alternative to copper that enables all-aluminum wiring systems in automotive applications. Aluminum Inlay Advantages for Wire Bonding Applications Al Wirebond Leadframes - These allow for high process yields and robust life testing for Safety Control Systems in automobiles. iON Connectors Data Sheet iON Connectors - An alternative to electroplated contacts surfaces, these offer Performance and stability in harsh environments. R270 Resistor Alloy Data Sheet R270 Resistor Alloy - A copper-manganese-nickel alloy with low resistivity and very low Thermal Coefficient of Resistance (TCR). Profiled Stainless Steel Data Sheets Profiled stainless steel can be customized for ultra-small surgical instruments to hand held consumer electronics. Tech Update - New Bi-Metal Seam Welded Tubing Historically, specialty welded tubing has not benefited from clad metal systems. At Materion Technical Materials, we have created a composite strip design that allows for clad tubing, and in turn enables the performance advantages of clad metal technology.
