What a difference between those auto body repair shops that just do traditional collision repair and the ones that do aluminum welding. Until the last few years with the introduction of the 2015 Ford F150, aluminum was only used as a primary body material on limited production vehicles like Range Rovers, Jaguar XK sedans, Audi A8s, and certain Mercedes-Benz models.
How does aluminum repair differ from steel repair?
1. A technician needs better tools and skills to reshape aluminum
2. Aluminum conducts heat better
3. Steel and aluminum are corrosive to each other
Aluminum is usually stronger than steel but weighs less. Less weight means better fuel mileage, as well as better towing and payload capacities.
