Generally speaking, aluminum for automotive industry is mainly concentrated in automotive wheels, automotive engine gearbox shells and body in white. The common aluminum alloys for car body are 2xxx, 5xxx and 6xxx aluminum alloy.
Car skeleton usually chooses 2 or 7 series aluminum alloys. Auto chassis often uses 5xxx or 6xxx aluminum alloy. Car seat uses 2xxx or 6xxx aluminum alloy. Car body usually chooses 5 or 6 series aluminium sheet. Car door can choose 5000 or 6000 aluminum plate.
2xxx aluminum alloy is a heat-treated strengthened aluminum, having excellent forging, high strength and good welding performance, but having power corrosion resistance compared with other series of aluminum alloy. Currently, the 2036 and 2022 alloys have been partially used for car body sheets.
6xxx aluminum is of high strength, better plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. 6009, 6010 and 6016 Aluminum alloys can achieve high strength after artificial aging and baking, which is currently used in automotive body outer panels and inner panels. The Audi A8 body board adopts this aluminum alloy.
5xxx aluminum can’t be enhanced by heat treatment. It has good corrosion resistance and welding performance, but Luder lines and other problems may occur when it is processed in an annealing state. Therefore it is mainly used for the inner panel of the cars. 5052 aluminum is very suitable for the production of car door. How about aluminum alloy 5052 properties?
5052 aluminum sheet is a commonly used anti-rust aluminum alloy with excellent comprehensive performance, such as mechanical properties, moderate hydrodynamic strength, anodizing properties, and weld properties. It is widely used in automobile manufacturing, mold processing, machining, automation and so on.
In addition to car door, 5052 aluminum alloy is often used for fuel tank. The traditional iron fuel tank in the car has been replaced by an aluminum fuel tank, especially for some heavy and large vehicles such as trucks. Because the use of aluminum alloy fuel tank can significantly reduce the weight of the car and improve the service life of the fuel tank.
The fuel tank in the car generally uses 5052 aluminum alloy. In addition to magnesium, there are a small amount of alloying elements such as manganese, chromium, beryllium, and titanium, among which chromium and manganese play a similar role, which can improve the stress corrosion cracking resistance of 5052 aluminum sheets.
