Advanced 5xxx-, 6xxx- and 7xxx- Aluminium Alloys for Applications in Automotive and Consumer Electronics
Aluminium alloys offer an excellent balance of strength, light weight, good formability and corrosion resistance, together with capability for decorative & functional surface treatments. They have become widely used for automotive and consumer electronic applications. AMAG rolling has developed advanced 5xxx-, 6xxx- and 7xxx- alloys and processes to extend use in these industries. Examples are shown and metallurgical aspects explained.
