The main use of 7021 automotive aluminum profiles in the automotive field
Body structure: since 7021 aluminum profiles have high strength and low density, they can be used in the manufacture of automobile body structures, including body frames, side beams, front and rear axles, etc. This reduces overall vehicle weight and improves the vehicle's fuel economy and acceleration performance.
Doors and hoods: 7021 aluminum profiles can also be used to make parts such as doors and hoods. Compared with traditional steel doors and hoods, parts made of 7021 aluminum profiles are lighter in weight, which can reduce the overall weight of the vehicle and improve the economy and safety performance of the car.
Wheels: 7021 aluminum profiles can also be used to manufacture car wheels, which can improve the stability and handling performance of the vehicle.
Braking system: 7021 aluminum profiles can be used to manufacture some parts in the braking system, such as brake calipers, which can improve the performance and durability of the braking system.
In short, 7021 aluminum profiles are widely used in the automotive field and can be used in many aspects of the car, which can not only improve the performance and economy of the car, but also improve the safety of the vehicle.
Characteristics of 7021 automotive aluminum profiles
High strength: 7021 aluminum alloy has high strength, which can meet the strength requirements of automobile structural parts and parts.

Precautions for the use of 7021 automotive aluminum profiles
Do not hit with hard objects: although 7021 aluminum alloy has high strength, its hardness is relatively low, and it is easy to be impacted and scratched. Therefore, during use and transportation, care should be taken to avoid collision with hard objects.
Anti-corrosion: 7021 aluminum alloy has good corrosion resistance, but it is prone to oxidation and corrosion in a humid environment. Therefore, care should be taken to avoid contact with water or moisture during storage and use.
Pay attention to safety when welding: 7021 aluminum alloy can be connected by various welding methods, but safety should be paid attention to during welding to avoid accidents such as harmful gases and fires.
Protect the surface: the surface of 7021 aluminum alloy is smooth and flat, and is not prone to defects, but it is prone to scratches and stains during use, so care should be taken to protect its surface during use and storage.
Avoid overheating: 7021 aluminum alloy has good processing performance, but care should be taken to avoid overheating during processing, so as not to affect its performance and strength.
To sum up, the use of 7021 automotive aluminum profiles needs to pay attention to its material characteristics and use environment, so as not to affect its performance and service life.
