The Application of 5754 Aluminum in Transportation
5754 aluminum sheet is widely used in vehicles, ships and fuel tankers due to is light weight, high hardness and good corrosion resistance. What are its uses? Learn more.
5754 aluminum belongs to Almg3. The magnesium alloy content is between 2.6 and 3.6. It has good rust and corrosion resistance, no color difference on the anodized surface, excellent processing performance, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, high weldability and moderate static strength. It is commonly used in vehicles, ships and fuel tankers.
Aluminum car body
5754 aluminum plate is mostly used for car body like car door, hood cover or trunk lids for it is corrosion-resistant, light in weight and high in strength. Its price is much higher than that of traditional galvanized steel plate, so it is rarely used in low-end cars, but only shown in the high-end brands.
At present, the most widely used aluminum automotive sheets are AA6016, AA6022, AA6111, AA6005, AA6009 and AA6010, AA5182, AA5754, AA5052, etc. For example: Plymouth Prowler uses 6022 as the body panel, Audi A8 uses 6016 as the body panel , the Acura NSX uses 5052 for the body and the 6000 series for the exterior panels, and the Jaguar XJ220 and GM EV1 use 5754 for the body panels.
Recently, the use of aluminum alloy tank trucks has become very common in developed countries. As the main material of the tank car body, aluminum alloy has excellent corrosion resistance and high reuse value in addition to its light weight.
Why choose 5754 aluminum sheet as the tank car body material? It has unmatched corrosion resistance compared to steel. Various liquids or liquefied gases can be transported without any protective layer inside.
When a tanker collides, due to the good electrical conductivity of aluminum alloy, little static electricity accumulates on the tank body, so no sparks will be generated, thereby reducing the occurrence of accidents such as explosions.
5754 aluminum sheet price is much higher than that of ordinary aluminum alloy plate like 5052 and 3003, so it is usually used in occasions requiring high corrosion and high strength. Welcome to leave message below to inquire what you need.
