The Aluminum Alloy 5052 Used in Automotive Industry

Different aluminum alloys have its own properties and is suitable for different parts of the car body. The lightweight and good processability and formability makes aluminum alloy sheet has been a key material of the car lightweight.

Although 5xxx aluminum alloy cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, it has good corrosion resistance and welding performance, which is mainly used for parts with complex shapes such as the inner panel of the car body. AcuraNSX uses aluminum alloy 5052 as the car body and 6000 series as the exterior panel, and JaguarXJ220 and GMEV1 use 5754 aluminum as the body cover material.

The main alloy element of 5052 aluminum sheet is magnesium, which has good forming properties, corrosion resistance, weldability, and medium strength. It can be used for automobile fuel tank, engine outer panels, trunks, car doors, etc., which can improve vehicle performance and decrease fuel consumption.

5052 aluminum plate has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than low-carbon steel. Therefore, 5052 aluminum plates are often used in larger squeezed areas of vehicles, which not only improves safety, but also improves performance. Firstly, the reduction in weight allows shorter stopping distances.5052 aluminum alloy.jpgSecondly, when comparing the strength-to-weight ratio of metals, 5052 aluminum can absorb the impact energy twice that of low-carbon steel. Therefore, the 5052 aluminum sheet can absorb the energy of the collision and help ensure the safety of passengers. This is extremely important in passenger cars.

Haomei 5052 aluminum alloy has good formability, smooth surface, good weldability and excellent bake hardenability. The lightweight of the automobile also requires the automotive aluminum sheet to have high bake hardenability, that is, the yield strength of the sheet after stamping deformation and paint baking has a significant increase.
