Aluminium Certified Collision Care

Aluminium Certified Collision Care

Aluminium is used in body production of many high end vehicles as well as the iconic Ford F150. Aluminium is stronger than steel, weighs less and this translates to better efficiency and fuel economy. Aluminium is also resistant to rust and corrosion. Aluminium vehicle repairs however, call for use of specialized auto body equipment. Aluminium does not have good metal memory so once damaged or dent, aluminium specific tools and skills are required to return it to its original state.

Why Choose Aluminium Certified Repair

There are many important differences between Aluminium and Steel that need to be taken into consideration during autobody repair.

Metal Memory

Aluminium metal does not have good metal memory, which means that once aluminium is dent or bent  it is not easily formed back to its original shape. Specialized methods and tools are required to get aluminium back to its original shape.

Specialized Equipment

Aluminium has a higher thermal conductivity than steel, meaning heat travels through aluminium further and faster. This presents many difficult challenges when welding aluminium. Excessive heat can compromise the integrity of the metal, causing safety issues if welding is not done properly. Furthermore, unlike traditional steel built vehicles, aluminium joints are not welded together but rather joined with special rivets and joins. These require specialized tools and training to work on properly.
