Aluminium sheets and coils for automotive applications
Through material lightweighting, Constellium is using aluminium to help the automotive industry address today’s environmental challenges.
Lightening the load
In light of increasing emissions regulations and consumer demand, automotive OEMs are exploring ways to lower CO2 emissions and reduce fuel consumption.
Constellium is helping automotive manufacturers respond using intelligent material lightweighting in areas including body-in-white, heat exchangers, equipment, chassis and other sheets.
The lightness and strength-weight ratio of aluminium make it the material of choice for lightweighting in automotive applications. This can translate into less fuel consumption and fewer emissions over the duration of a vehicle’s lifetime.
