Why is aluminium metal sheet used in car making

  Aluminium metal sheet and profile products are more and more frequently used in car making. These sheet metal aluminium products include plain aluminium sheets, aluminium tread plates, anodized aluminium sheets, color coated aluminum sheet and so on. Then why is the trend of using aluminum alloys in car making stronger and stronger?

  Aluminium metal sheets have a series of excellent properties, such as low density, high specific strength and specific stiffness, good elasticity, excellent impact resistance, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, high electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, easy surface coloration, good processability and high recovery. Therefore, the aluminium sheet metal has always been regarded as a “promising metal” in the field of engineering. In the past, when aluminium was expensive and oil fuel was cheap, few automobile manufacturers were willing to choose aluminium alloys as a raw material, but in recent years, they are changing mind under the pressure of energy crisis, environmental protection and traffic safety issues. Most importantly, the price of aluminium alloys are declining based on maturer process.

  So far, the proportion of aluminium sheet metal parts in the processing of auto parts has become higher and higher, which makes the car more lightweight, and the benefits are mainly as follows.

  1. Lightweight aluminum alloy can significantly reduce the weight of the car. At the same time, the aluminum reserves on the earth are very large. The recovery and utilization rate of aluminum alloy is high, the cost is low, and the environmental impact is small.

  2. After the weight reduction of aluminum alloy lightweight car, there is also considerable energy-saving effect. For every kilogram of weight reduction, 1L fuel can make the car drive more than 0.011 kilometers.

  3. Aluminum alloy lightweight vehicles can also reduce carbon dioxide emissions, reduce air pollution and improve the environment after weight reduction.

  4. Lightweight vehicles help to improve the stability of the car, the comfort and safety of passengers.
