5052 aluminum coil for fuel tanks

Writer:Admin   Time:

      Fuel tanks are one of the main uses of 5052 aluminum coil. 5052 aluminum alloy has magnesium as the main alloy element, and is characterized by good corrosion resistance, weldability and cold workability. It is commonly used in the manufacture of aircraft and automobile fuel tanks, oil pipes, and sheet metal parts of transportation vehicles and ships, meters, street lamp brackets and rivets, Hardware products, electrical enclosures, etc. Among them fuel tanks are the most representative.

      A fuel tank is like the "stomach" of trucks and cars, providing continuous power for the body. The development of long-distance transportation has made people more and more demanding on the volume, life, appearance and cost performance of fuel tanks. This has forced truck manufacturers to continuously screen and optimize the materials of fuel tanks, from iron fuel tanks to plastic fuel tanks to Aluminum alloy fuel tank. The prevalence of aluminum alloy fuel tanks makes 5052 aluminum coil the darling of the fuel tank raw materials industry.

      5052 aluminium is used in fuel tanks because of its outstanding advantages over other materials. First, aluminium never rusts like iron. This avoids impurities in a oil tank, which eventually hinders normal operation of the fuel system of a truck. The aluminum alloy fuel tank itself has good corrosion resistance and can be used properly to prevent corrosion for many years. It is undoubtedly the first choice for large passenger cars and heavy trucks with high fuel consumption and high fuel quality requirements. Now aluminum alloy fuel tanks have occupied over 80% of the shares of the heavy truck fuel tank market. Second, 5052 aluminium is light in weight and helps to reduce overall weight of a truck. At present, major auto companies are gradually moving towards lightweight development under the premise of ensuring the strength and safety of the body. Aluminum alloy is lighter than iron. Many parts of the vehicle configuration are beginning to use aluminum alloy materials. Third, the making of aluminum alloy fuel tank has omits the spraying process, and the silver appearance looks beautiful and atmospheric. In addition, aluminum alloy has better extensibility and is not easy to break in the collision. Last but not least, the production technology of aluminium alloy is quiet mature now, which makes it competitive in price, too.
