At present, many countries use aluminum alloy as the body structure of the vehicle. Compared with the steel structure, aluminum alloy is lightweight, which can reduce body weight by about 30-50%. Aluminum alloy plays an important role in reducing energy consumption and environmental pollution. The aluminum alloy material is easy to process and shape, which is convenient for mass production of irregular shapes.
6005 aluminum alloy is an ideal extrusion material for the vehicle body (underframe, sidewall, roof, etc), because of its lightweight, high strength, and good welding performance. The surface of the aluminum profiles can be sprayed with PVDF painting, or electrophoretic coating, which all will increase its corrosion resistance under harsh environment.
