Our Product

Triclad® is an atmospheric cladded transition joint. Shipbuilders aim to build the most reliable ship, vessel or superyacht within budget and on-time. In order to do so, they have to make the right choices for the most important welds in a ship. The most sought out solution: welding aluminium to steel with Triclad®, the aluminium – steel transition joint.

Triclad® is produced as a parent plate in a standard size. This plate has a usable surface area of 1300 x 3800 mm, from which strips or other shapes are cut. Think for example of squares, rectangles, discs, or even complex shapes. The last two are obtained using a water jet that will minimize the need for finish machining.

In order to always provide shipbuilders with the best solution, Triclad® is available in custom shapes and sizes.
