Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC)
Dynamic Materials Corporation is the world’s leading provider of explosion-welded clad metal plates. Its Detaclad™ products are used in a variety of industries, including petrochemicals, refining, hydrometallurgy, aluminum smelting and shipbuilding.
The Boulder, Colorado, USA based company began business in 1965 as an explosion forming specialist, producing complex three-dimensional parts for aerospace equipment manufacturers. DMC became a publicly traded company in 1976 under the ticker symbol “BOOM” and shortly thereafter licensed technology from E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company (“DuPont”) to explosively bond, or clad, two or more dissimilar metal plates together. The explosion-bonded clad metal business remains DMC’s core business today. The acquisitions of DuPont’s Detaclad Division in 1996, Nobelclad Europe in 2001, and DynaEnergetics in 2007 has strengthened the Company’s worldwide position in explosion cladding.
