Why is aluminum so suitable for use in automobiles?
Because of the light weight of aluminum, it is 10%-40% lighter than steel. Regardless of whether it is an oil vehicle or a new energy vehicle, if there is no significant improvement in energy consumption, the battery life of the vehicle can only be improved by reducing the weight of the body. Therefore, in the automotive field in the future, aluminum must be the most widely used material.
Aluminum’s formability and ductility make it excellent for forming.
Aluminum can be made into different shapes, such as aluminum plate, aluminum coil, aluminum tube, aluminum tube, aluminum groove, aluminum beam, aluminum rod and aluminum angle, etc. Different morphologies make aluminum the material of choice for a range of automotive applications that may require different properties, be it size and shape, yield strength, finishing properties or corrosion resistance.
Aluminum For Cars
The automotive industry uses aluminum for frames and bodies, electrical wiring, wheels, lights, paint, transmissions, A/C condensers and pipes, engine parts (pistons, radiators, cylinder heads) and magnets (for speedometers, tachometers) and airbags).
