6016 Aluminum Used in Automotive Industry ​

Since aluminum alloy has the characteristics of light weight, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high specific strength, good impact resistance, easy surface coloring, etc., and more than 80% of aluminum can be recycled and reused, it has been an ideal lightweight material for automobiles.

Since the 1970s, developed countries in the automobile industry such as Europe, America and Japan have invested a lot of manpower and material resources in the development to develop 6xxx aluminium used in automotive industry and successively developed and registered international aluminum alloys such as 6009, 6010, 6016, 6111, and 6022.


6000 aluminum alloys are heat-treatable-strengthened aluminum alloys with high strength, good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. 6-series alloys are the main force of body panels. The yield strength and tensile strength of the 6xxx T4 aluminum plate is similar to the steel plate and its hardening coefficient even exceeds that of the steel plate.

6009, 6010 and 6016 aluminum alloys are currently used for exterior and interior panels of automobile bodies due to their good plasticity and the ability to achieve high strength through artificial aging during the paint-baking process after forming. The body panels of the Audi A8 are made of this series of aluminum alloys.

6016 aluminum alloy is is widely used in ABS, but the heat treatment process is complicated, and pre-aging treatment T4P must be performed between solution treatment and paint treatment to obtain good performance. Because it should have good formability before stamping, and can rapidly increase the strength during the paint baking process after stamping, so as to have high dent resistance.

Al6016 is also used to make anti-collision beam. Compared with the steel plate front anti-collision beam assembly, the use of 6016 aluminum alloys to manufacture the front anti-collision beam not only greatly reduces the weight, but also improves the anti-collision effect.
