The rapid development of the automobile industry and the continuous innovation of process technology and new materials have made automobile lightweight a trend. Replacing steel with aluminum alloy is one of the main weight reduction methods adopted by the majority of automobile manufacturers. Aluminum alloy plates have the advantages of light weight, high strength, good tensile properties, high plasticity, and corrosion resistance. With the development of automobile lightweight, aluminum alloy has become a key raw material for reducing the weight of automobile bodies.
Aluminum alloy has developed rapidly after entering the automotive industry. It has been used in radiators and wheels in the early stage, and now it has been transferred to cylinder blocks, engine covers, body parts and other parts, and its application fields have gradually expanded. At the same time, auto parts are made of aluminum alloy, which can reduce energy consumption and exhaust emissions, and protect the environment. The market demand for aluminum alloy plates and strips continues to rise.
Among the commonly used automotive aluminum sheets, 5052 aluminum sheets and 6061 aluminum sheets are more commonly used:
5052 aluminum sheet is an AL-Mg alloy aluminum plate, which is a widely used rust-proof aluminum. This alloy has high strength, excellent formability, good weldability, high elongation, and high plasticity. It can be used for automotive fuel tank materials and engine exteriors. Board, bus trunk, bus skin, etc.
6061 aluminum sheet is an Al-Mg-Si alloy with excellent weldability, good corrosion resistance and cold workability. It is an alloy with a wide range of applications and can be used for automobile chassis protection parts, automobile four-door Seat frame etc.
