6014 6056 Aluminum Sheet Metal for Cars

The car body is the main structure of the vehicle. In addition to creating a passenger cabin and driving compartment, it must also reserve space for mechanical components such as the engine.

When we look at the car body from the outside, we can find the covering parts like front and rear bumpers, hood panel, fenders, door panels and other components. Aluminum alloy has excellent ductility, half the density of steel and good corrosion resistance, making it the material of choice for lightweight structures.

Common automotive aluminum alloys include 5 series and 6 series. For 6 series alloys, the product hardness can be increased under heat treatment conditions by adding silicon and magnesium. The hardness of these alloys is usually less than that of 2 series and 7 series, but their formability and welding properties are excellent.

The main alloy grades of 6xxx series aluminum alloy automotive panels include 6016, 6014, 6022, 6056 aluminum plate, etc. It is currently the main aluminum alloy used in vehicle body exterior coverings. It has the characteristics of low density, medium strength, and good weldability and formability.

6056 aluminum alloy is an Al-Mg-Si-Cu alloy widely used in the automotive and aviation fields. Its strength is 15% higher than that of 6061 aluminum alloy. Its weldability, corrosion resistance and cutting performance are all better than 7075 and 2024 aluminum alloys. Homogenization annealing treatment is one of the key links for 6056 aluminum alloy to obtain ideal process and mechanical properties.

6061 alloy is the first choice for automobile manufacturing. This alloy is very resistant to corrosion. Generally speaking, these alloys are less ductile. In addition, 6060 and 6014 are also common automotive aluminum alloy grades.

6014 aluminum is a heat-treatable strengthenable alloy with good formability and machinability. It also has medium strength and can maintain good operability after annealing. 6014-T651 is the main alloy of 6014 alloy. It has excellent features such as processability, excellent characteristics and plating properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and no deformation after processing,etc. Welcome to inquire these 6xxx aluminum alloys from Haomei Aluminum.
