BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/10 -- Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC) (NASDAQ: BOOM), the world's leading provider of explosion-welded clad metal plates, today announced it has shipped an order incorporating the largest clad plates ever manufactured using explosion welding technology. At 542 inches in length (13.8 meters), 120 inches in width (3 meters) and 2.84 inches in thickness (72 millimeters), the plates each exceed 53,000 pounds (24 metric tons) and have a surface area of more than 450 square feet (42 square meters). The plates will be used in equipment associated with a North American clean diesel fuel project. The 0.12-inch-thick (3 millimeters) stainless steel cladding layer will provide corrosion resistance during the aggressive diesel production process, while the alloy steel base metal will offer higher strength and lower cost than would be available from solid stainless steel.

"To the best of our knowledge these also represent the largest plates ever produced by any industrial clad plate manufacturing technology," said Jeff Nicol, DMC's vice president of sales and marketing. "Our ability to cost effectively produce and ship such large plates allows our fabricating customers to design their equipment with greater flexibility and efficiency. Our cladding teams have been pursuing increasingly demanding production specifications, and we believe our recent achievements could open up a range of new project opportunities."
