Insider’s Look: 7000-series aluminum alloy innovation

Insights on new alloy development, advanced bonding solutions and more are being brought to Detroit, Michigan, this week by Novelis automotive R&D and commercial executives speaking at the 4th Annual Global Automotive Lightweight Materials conference.Novelis scientists and engineers work every day on ways to make vehicles lighter, stronger and safer. And this week, we’re bringing those insights forward, encouraging the industry to evolve with us and adopt new and better solutions for making vehicles.

Take our new Novelis AdvanzTM 7000-series aluminum alloy innovation as an example. These high strength alloys build on aerospace technology to make automotive aluminum that exceeds the weight saving potential of high-strength steels. This new series of alloys was developed and tested inside our Global Research and Technology Center near Atlanta, Georgia,  and here is an insider’s look at how we did it…
