Large-Sized Aluminum Sheets for Trailer Applications

When it comes to the width of aluminum sheet for vehicles, the maximum width can reach an impressive 2650mm. For trailers, the 4×8 aluminum sheet measures 1219mm x 2438mm, making it a suitable choice for a variety of applications. This aluminum sheet offers excellent corrosion resistance, weldability, cold workability, and medium strength.

When it comes to semi trailers and other tankers, the commonly used aluminum sheets are typically made from alloys like 5052 and 6061, which are part of the 5xxx and 6xxx series. These alloys provide excellent strength and durability, making them perfect for semi trailer and tanker applications.

The standard width of 5083 ultra-wide aluminum plates, which are commonly utilized by tank truck manufacturers, measures 2.2 meters. These plates are available in thicknesses of 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, and 8mm. A typical tank truck is constructed using 4-6 of these extra-wide aluminum plates.

Aluminum tank trucks offer a weight reduction of approximately 20% compared to steel tank trucks of the same size. This reduction in weight results in an impressive 30% increase in transportation capacity. Furthermore, the 5083 alloy used in aluminum tank trucks offers exceptional strength, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance. This combination of high-quality materials makes aluminum alloy tank trucks welded with 5083 plate exceptionally wear-resistant.

So if you’re looking for a tank truck that offers superior performance, durability, and reliability, consider investing in an aluminum tank truck. You’ll not only enjoy the benefits of a lighter and more maneuverable vehicle, but you’ll also reap the rewards of increased transportation capacity and longevity.

The large aluminum sheets are tailored to the specific needs of the special vehicles, ensuring that a single sheet can cover both the required side and top surfaces. This eliminates the need for welded aluminum plates, thereby eliminating potential negative effects like paint peeling and blistering at the weld during subsequent painting and baking processes. It also enhances the sealing performance of the trailers.

It is commonly assumed that aluminum plates with a width exceeding 1500mm are referred to as wide aluminum plates, while those surpassing 2000mm are considered ultra-wide. Nevertheless, the production standards for ultra-wide aluminum plates are exceptionally rigorous, making them inaccessible to all but the most advanced manufacturers. Mngtai Aluminum has introduced an SMS six-roller cold rolling mill to produce 2650mm ultra-wide aluminum plates, such as 5×10 aluminum sheet.
