For the material of today’s—and tomorrow’s—automobiles, all roads lead to Arconic. Our lightweight alloys and aluminum sheet solutions are found bumper to bumper—from doors and hoods to heat exchangers.
The automotive industry is increasingly turning to aluminum-intensive vehicles for improved performance and fuel efficiency. Arconic innovation is leading the way with breakthrough products and technologies, like Arconic 951 - an award-winning* pre-treatment that enables the cost effective mass market shift from steel to aluminum intensive vehicles.
Pounds of aluminum per vehicle will grow by more than 42 percent, from 397 pounds in 2015 to 565 pounds in 2028.
Our breakthrough adhesive bonding technology, Arconic 951™, is nine times stronger than its predecessor, titanium zirconium. A951 overcomes previous challenges with joining aluminum to itself or other materials in the making of automotives—enabling the production of more aluminum-intensive vehicles.
