You have a new product idea? You need a material solution?

New materials are the driving force behind your innovations
Clad materials help you to develop new functionalities and significantly improve existing technical or material solutions. The material research and development department plays an important role at Wickeder Westfalenstahl to realize new ​​cold-rolled cladding strips.

Wickeder Westfalenstahl offers tailor-made cladding combinations for your application in addition to our standard products. As an experienced partner, we offer you comprehensive expertise in form, strength, function, conductivity, longevity, safety and many other material properties.

Often unbeatable argument for cladding composites: they support, depending on the material combination, the cost reduction in production. Thus, the efficient use of materials achieves cost savings and the best possible competitive advantages.

New materials are also urgently needed if quality problems occur in your existing product or if new requirements are placed on your application.

We offer the balancing act between research and industry and accompany you along the whole process from development to series production or even only with your desired process steps.
