Aluminum Plate for Special Vehicles

Aluminum alloy, with its unique advantages of low density, corrosion resistance, energy saving and environmental protection, is gradually used in large quantities in special vehicles and has become the main material for lightweight.

Tanker Truck

Compared with ordinary carbon steel and stainless steel tank trucks, aluminum alloy tank trucks can not only significantly reduce the weight of the vehicle, improve transportation efficiency, but also extend the service life of the tank.

Its corrosion resistance is more than 70% higher than that of traditional carbon steel. This feature greatly reduces the maintenance costs related to the tank. The internal cleanliness of the tank is high, and it has good energy saving and environmental protection effects.

Aluminum alloy 5083, 5454 and 5182 are currently commonly used tanker aluminum sheets. They can be used to make tanker body, baffle and tanker head. The aluminum alloy tank truck can load oil, gasoline, chemicals, cement and other dense materials.


Aluminum alloy vans mainly include aluminum alloy van semi-trailers and aluminum alloy wing opening transport vehicles. According to the usage rate of aluminum alloy in the vehicle, it can be divided into all-aluminum alloy vans and steel-aluminum hybrid vans.

An all-aluminum alloy van means that the frame and body are made of aluminum alloy; a steel-aluminum hybrid van means that part of the vehicle structure is made of aluminum alloy, such as the carriage body is made of aluminum alloy while the frame is still made of steel. The aluminum alloys available for van trucks are aluminum plates, aluminum alloy profiles, aluminum honeycomb panels, aluminum castings, etc. Due to the advantages of high strength and easy molding of aluminum alloy profiles, aluminum alloy profiles are preferred for manufacturing.

Aluminum alloy vans have long been popular in European and American markets. Because of its light weight, large loading space, beautiful appearance, and the ability to print advertisements on the surface, it occupies a leading position in the US market. The alloys used in aluminum alloy profiles for containers mainly include 6061, 6082, 6351, 6005, 6063 and 6060, among which 6061 and 6082 alloys account for more than 90%. Asia and the United States mainly use 6061 alloy, while European vans mainly use 6082 alloy.

Refrigerated trucks

Refrigerated trucks are closed van transport vehicles used to transport frozen or fresh-keeping goods, including bread-type refrigerated trucks, van-type refrigerated trucks and semi-trailer refrigerated trucks. The biggest difference in the relationship between properties and temperature between aluminum and steel is that steel has low-temperature brittleness, while aluminum and aluminum alloys do not. When the temperature decreases, while the strength and performance of aluminum and aluminum alloys increase, the plasticity also increases as the temperature decreases. Therefore, aluminum alloys become good materials for low-temperature equipment.

Haomei Aluminum provides 5083, 5754, 5454, 5059 and 5182 aluminum alloy for special vehicles, especially fuel tankers, semi trucks, LNG tank,etc. Welcome to leave message below to inquire what you want.
