Car aluminum plate application increased significantly

addtiame:2016/10/21 click:
A new study suggests that the future automobile aluminum demand will grow at an unprecedented speed. In 2014 and 2015 is considered to be in the auto industry by the turning point of the traditional steel to aluminum and other lightweight materials, including the use of aluminum instead of advanced high strength steels (AHSS).
In general, the use of lightweight aluminum and other materials will be a significant characteristics of heavy vehicles, such as pickup trucks, suvs, etc. And AHSS is likely to continue to use in portable vehicle, it can reduce the body weight of about 100 kg.
Use aluminum car will be in the process of raw material processing and production of environmental impact, but will reduce the environmental impact in product use phase. Most important, the use of aluminum car the whole life cycle impact on the environment will be reduced. Therefore, aluminum instead of steel in the automobile industry development trend will continue.
From 2012 to 2015, the north American light car aluminum consumption increased by 28% (growth in car production and the growth of the aluminum content). Predicts 2025, pickup the train car body part will consist of aluminum, 75% 24%, large cars SUV22 %, and other small vehicles by 18%.
North American and European car aluminum content will be the highest, in Asia, especially China, is still the biggest market for lightweight car.
