The automobile fuel tank adopts 5052 aluminum sheet to integrate safety and light weight

News Details
    With the concept of lightweight vehicles, traditional iron tanks have gradually been replaced by aluminum fuel tanks, especially heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks. The aluminum alloy fuel tank can reduce the weight of the vehicle by half, and it is not easy to rust. It has a long service life and is favored by users. The aluminum alloy fuel tank material is mostly 5052 aluminum sheet, which is a kind of aluminum-magnesium alloy, and is a rust-proof aluminum widely used in life.

    The aluminum alloy has a low density and is light in weight and large in volume as an automobile fuel tank material, which can significantly reduce the weight of the automobile. As the weight of the car body is reduced, its fuel consumption and exhaust emissions are also reduced. This has helped to save costs, reduce air pollution, and improve the environment.

    The 5052 aluminum sheet has high strength, especially high fatigue resistance. In addition to magnesium, there are a small amount of manganese, chromium, niobium, titanium and other elements in the alloy, of which chromium and manganese act similarly, which can improve the stress corrosion cracking resistance of aluminum sheets, as well as the strength of base metal and weld, and reduce welding cracks. tendency. When a violent impact is encountered, cracks are less likely to occur and the safety of the vehicle is ensured. In addition, the aluminum alloy is not easy to burn and the explosion-proof effect is obvious. The aluminum alloy fuel tank market has broad prospects and is an inevitable trend in the future.
    Mingtai Aluminum specializes in supplying automotive lightweight aluminum, including automotive wheels, engine gearbox housings, automotive frames, and aluminum for interior and floor panels. The main grades are 5052, 5083, 5754, 5182, 6061 alloys. The aluminum processing technology for automobile lightweighting is mature, the mechanical properties are excellent, and the market acceptance is high.
