Clad Strip Casting by a Roll Caster
Casting of clad strip, which was one of the composite alloys, was tried using a roll caster. A vertical tandem type twin roll casters for clad strip were designed and assembled to cast the clad strip. Three layers of clad strip could be cast. The interface between the base strip and overlay strip was clear. The as-cast clad strip could be cold rolled without peeling at the interface. The element of the each strip did not diffuse to another strip at the interface. The effects of the roll speed and melt temperature of the overlay strip on the cladding of the strip were investigated.
