The car fender is used to cover the wheels of the car body. The main function of the fender is to prevent the sand, gravel, mud, etc. rolled up by the wheel from splashing into the bottom of the carriage during the driving process. 5182 aluminum sheet with table mechanical properties, good workability and weldability, corrosion resistance and good formability is a common choice.
The air reservoir is another storage device in the automobile brake system,which is used to store the gas compressed by the air compressor. 5083 aluminum plate has been used to make the air reservoir. It common width is 100-2650 mm and the thickness is 0.3-500 mm.

The difference in technology, material selection, and process makes the 6061-O aluminum sheet for automobile wheels vary a lot. In addition, the 6061 aluminum sheet price needs to be considered in conjunction with the sum of the aluminum ingot price, shipping cost and the aluminum plate processing cost.
