Clad. Where the component material is clad and the cladding is a factor during examination, the block shall be clad to the component clad
nominal thickness ±1/8 in. (3 mm). Deposition of clad shall be by the same method (i.e., rollbonded, manual weld deposited, automatic wire
deposited, or automatic strip deposited) as used to clad the component to be examined. When the cladding method is not known or the
J-432 method of cladding used on the component is impractical for block cladding, deposition of clad may be by the manual method. When the
41 Subparagraph (b) parent materials on opposite sides of a weld are clad by either different P-, A-, or F-numbers or material designations or methods, the
revised calibration block shall be clad with the same P-, A-, or F-numbers or material designations using the same method used on the side of the
weld from which the examination will be conducted. When the examination is conducted from both sides of the weld, the calibration block
shall provide for calibration for both materials and methods of cladding. For welds clad with a different material or method than the adjoining
parent materials, and it is a factor during the examination, the calibration block shall be designed to be representative of this combination.

(b) Thickness Check. A free-run shall be made on the measuring block. The distance between the lateral wave and first back-wall signal shall
be +0.02 in. (0.5 mm) of the blocks measured thickness. Set-ups failing this check shall have the probe separation distance either adjusted or
its programmed value changed and this check repeated.
