Clad Steel Plate

Clad steel plate offers a highly effective and low-cost solution to industrial sectors such as shipbuilding, construction, and the manufacture of certain types of industrial tanks such as pressure vessels.

Clad Steel Plate - Advantages

Clad plates are classified as composite steel and are produced by bonding stainless steel to a base metal or carbon steel plate. While the clad plate offers a more cost-effective solution, its features and performance are still remarkable with excellent strength, particularly in comparison with other structural materials. The clad plate also has impressive heat and corrosive resistant qualities.

The clad steel plate usually undergoes heat treatment after the forming process, if such a specification is necessary.

As part of Masteel's notable supply portfolio, the company can supply a wide range of clad plates for use in a variety of industries.


  • High-quality steel from major European steel mills
  • Accurate 'in-house' cutting service
  • Quick turnaround
  • Heat-resistant qualities
  • Corrosive resistance
  • Major stockholding
  • Global shipping

In addition, clad plates can be used as a cost-effective material to produce pressure vessel heads and dished ends. Masteel’s clad plates are supplied throughout the petrochemical industry and are used in the fabrication of industrial boilers and pressurized vessels.
