A thin layer of metal foil bonded to a substrate to form the conductive PCB pattern.
A method of applying a layer of metal over another metal whereby the junction of the two metals is continuously welded.
A relatively thick layer of ( 0.04" ) of different material applied by surface welding for the purpose of improving corrosion or heat resistance.
Application of a stainless steel coating to a lower-alloy steel by means of pouring, welding, or coating to increase corrosion resistance at a lower cost than using steel exclusively.
The application of a thick (generally above 1mm) coating which melts or diffuses into the substrate. Processes include weld cladding and plasma transferred arc (PTA).
The application of a thin coat of stainless steel to another metal in order to increase corrosion resistance.
