JOINING COPPER AND COPPER-NICKEL CLAD STEELS

Copper-clad steels, and steels clad with copper alloy, have a variety of applications in industry, and copper/nickel alloy No. 706 has itself been successfully used in ship applications where resistance to corrosion and fouling is required. There is little published information on procedures for welding the clad materials, and the Authors here present the results of a study on the practicability of welded fabrication of major components from plate clad with copper and plate clad with 90/10 copper/nickel alloy (alloy No. 706). The study demonstrated that acceptable joints can be made with conventional welding processes and commercial filler metals, and, as a practical test, the procedures were adpated for use in the construction of the copper/nickel-clade steel hull of the Copper Mariner II. Order from BSRA as No. 49,909.
