Haomei 5182 aluminum alloy sheet shows the following advantages as a tank material.

First, lower density of aluminium than other regular metals help to realize the lightweight of the truck body which can be about 20% lighter than a steel tank truck of the same size. This alone improves the loading ability of the truck by 30%.

Second, tanks made of 5182 aluminium are corrosion resistant, wear resistant, durable, economic and environmental friendly. The 5182 aluminum plate produced by Haomei is free from peeling, bubble, coarse surface, mechanical damages or other defects.

Third, al 5182 alloy shows a better tensile strength than other members of 5000 series, which makes it harder for tanks to break from external forces. Containing both magnesium and silicon, the alloy shows good rust resistance, cold processing property and welding properties for gas, argon, spot and roll welding.

Fourth, the recycle rate of aluminium tanks are higher than steel ones.

The demand for 5182 aluminium alloy sheet keeps rising with expansion of tank trucks around the world, leading to rounds of competition among manufacturers in and out of China in global market.
