Aluminum Alloy Sheet For Automobile
Important aluminum alloy sheet for automobile lightweight
Automotive lightweighting has been carried out drastically in China. As an important material for automotive lightweighting, aluminum alloys are increasingly used in automotive parts. According to relevant data, in 2015, the market penetration rate of aluminum alloy in car bodies and panels was only 6.6%. In recent years, with the increasing emphasis on energy conservation and emission reduction, automobile manufacturing enterprises have invested more and more in lightweight vehicles.
By 2025, the penetration rate of aluminum alloys in automobile manufacturing will increase significantly. Among many aluminum alloy sheet series, 5 series and 6 series aluminum alloys have been widely used in automobile manufacturing, especially 5052 aluminum sheet. It is a rust-proof aluminum plate with a wide range of uses, with high strength, especially fatigue resistance, high plasticity and corrosion resistance, good weldability, and polishing.
5052 aluminum plate is an aluminum alloy that cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. It is suitable for parts with complex shapes such as the inner panel of the car body. It can also be used for automobile skins, doors, outer panels of automobile engines, and automobile fuel tanks. The 5052 aluminum plate has high strength, high resistance to stress corrosion cracking, and low weld cracking tendency, which can guarantee various safety performance indicators required by automobiles.
In addition, the 5052 aluminum plate can effectively reduce the weight of the vehicle body and reduce fuel consumption, thereby realizing the transformation of the car from high energy consumption to low energy consumption and low emissions. According to relevant statistics, the weight of the car is reduced by 10%, and the fuel consumption will be reduced by 6%-8%. It can be seen that the lightweight of automobiles is of great significance. It can not only alleviate the energy crisis to a certain extent, but also contribute to the control of environmental pollution. It is a big plan to benefit the country and the people!
