Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC)

Dynamic Materials Corporation is the worlds 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 DMCs core business today. The acquisitions of DuPonts Detaclad Division in 1996, Nobelclad Europe in 2001, and DynaEnergetics in 2007 has strengthened the Companys worldwide position in explosion cladding.
