What is cladding?

I never heard the word "cladding" until last week following the Grenfell Tower fire in London. What is it?

It is a foam type of siding/insulation that gives off cyanide gas when it burns. Even the manufacturer says it was misused in the UK. It is not supposed to be used more than 32 feet off the ground. It is illegal in the US and many other countries. There are at least 7 other high-rises in the UK with this stuff.

I learned that the term comes from "clad", as in "clad in an ugly outfit." It refers to what is on the outside of the building.
