Aluminums are not only significantly lighter than traditional materials but also deliver great forming and functional properties.

By making special modifications to the manufacturing process – from ingot casting through to subsequent heat treatment in automotive’s dedicated annealing furnaces – and by specifically adjusting the alloy composition, variants with their own individually determined properties are manufactured for a wide range of requirements and applications.


Outer body panels need an excellent surface, hang-on parts like doors have to be stiff, and structural components require sheet that allows for quite complex forms.


For outer body parts, exquisite surface qualities are indispensable. Forming and hemming are further key properties.


For inner body components, both heat-treatable and non-heat-treatable alloys can be used.


A lot of inner body components are complex in shape. Here, non-heat-treatable alloys show their outstanding forming potential.


For structural applications which require high corrosion resistance and strength. We (Yuanfar) offer the highest requirements and a variety of alloys to meet your needs, especially when the parts undergo long and high-temperature paint-baking cycles.


We (Yuanfar) offer aluminum with special surface topographies to extend the forming limits, and with conversion treatment to strengthen adhesive bonding and various lubrications to protect the surface and improve formability.


Aluminum Body Structure Key Features

  • Great weight saving potential

  • Good formability

  • High dent resistance and yield strength

  • Good corrosion behavior under thermal load

  • High-quality surface finish, free from defects like roping

Tank trucks are tank shaped transport vehicles used to carry a variety of liquids, liquefied gas and powder goods, such as gasoline, crude oil, natural gas, alcohol and other flammable and explosive goods.


The tank truck itself is bulky and heavy, and coupled with the weight of the transported items, it will increase the risk factor during the driving process.


So it is necessary to use lightweight materials to make the tank body to reduce the weight of the tank truck.


Common Aluminum Alloys for Tank Trucks

5052, 5083, 5754, 5454, 6061, 6082.


The thickness of the aluminum plate for the tank body is generally 5mm. The larger the tank body, the thicker the aluminum plate is required to ensure the safety of the tank body.


Advantages of Aluminum for Tank Trucks

1. The aluminum plate for tank trucks is lighter than steel plates in weight, it can greatly reduce the weight of tank trucks, thereby reducing the fuel consumption of tank trucks, reducing exhaust emissions, and protecting the environment. 

The aluminum tanker is more economical and practical because aluminums are low density and high strength, so aluminum tanker is more than 4 tons lighter than similar steel tankers and 20% more filling than steel tankers.


2. Aluminum plate for tank truck is corrosion resistant and fatigue resistant. The 5 series aluminum alloy is a typical anti-rust aluminum plate. The 6 series aluminum plate has better corrosion resistance. Their superior performance is unmatched by steel. The tank body made of aluminum alloy is durable and does not need any protective coating internally. It can transport various liquids or liquefied gases without being corroded.


3. Aluminum plate for tank truck has high safety performance, and aluminum is recyclable metal. The aluminum plate for tank trucks has good electrical conductivity and energy absorption performance. When a collision occurs, static electricity hardly collects on the tank body, and it is difficult to generate sparks, thereby reducing the occurrence of explosion accidents.
