cladding

1. the process of protecting one metal by bonding a second metal to its surface
2. the protective coating so bonded to metal

Cladding

The process or the resulting product produced by the bonding of one metal to another, to protect the inner metal from weathering.

Cladding

 

the thermomechanical application to the surface of metal sheets, plates, wire, or tubing of a thin layer of another metal or alloy. It can be carried out during the hot rolling of sheets or plates or during the pressing of tubes. Cladding can be one- or two-sided. Its uses include the production of bimetals and trimetals, the creation of corrosion-resistant layers of aluminum on sheets, plates, and tubes of aluminum alloys, and the application of brass coatings to steel sheets—instead of electroplating.

cladding

[′klad·iŋ]
(communications)
A plastic or glass sheath that is fused to and surrounds the core of an optical fiber.
(engineering)
Process of covering one material with another and bonding them together under high pressure and temperature. Also known as bonding.
(nucleonics)
An outer jacket, usually metallic, for a nuclear fuel element; prevents corrosion of fuel and release of fission products into the coolant.

cladding

1. See siding.
2. A metal coating which is bonded to another metal; see clad alloy.
3. In welding, the deposition of filler metal on a metal surface to obtain desired properties or dimensions; also called surfacing.
4. A nonstructural material (or the surface formed by such a material) used as the exterior covering for the carcass or framework of a building.
5. The surface on which shingles, tiles, or clapboards are fastened. Also see siding and veneer.

cladding

The plastic or glass sheath that is fused to and surrounds the core of an optical fiber. The cladding's mirror-like coating keeps the light waves reflected inside the core. The cladding is covered with a protective outer jacket. See fiber optics glossary.


Cladding
The cladding covers the inner core of the fiber which is the actual pathway that the light travels through.
