Specialist aluminium repair

Specialist aluminium repair

Aluminium is a superb material to build cars out of, way ahead of steel in terms of all-round performance. More strength for less weight means an increase in performance and fuel economy (and reduction in emissions) without compromising safety or durability. It is also possible to reclaim and recycle a large amount of the material at the end of a vehicle’s life, bring further environmental benefits.

 

Some facts:

 

  • Pound for pound, aluminium can absorb twice the crash energy of mild steel. Larger impact zones can be designed while still saving weight.
  • Compared with a fleet of traditional steel vehicles, aluminium use saves the equivalent of 108 million barrels of crude oil in energy.
  • At the end of a vehicle’s life nearly 90 percent of the aluminium, on average, is recycled.

Aluminium is a very different material to steel, requiring specialist skills alongside significant investment in equipment to repair to a high standard.

 

Pentagon are manufacturer-approved to carry out this specialist work on today’s cutting-edge vehicles including the Audi R8, A8 and new shape TT, as well as the new Range Rover, Ranger Rover Sport and Jaguar’s F-Type and XJ models.

 

The use of aluminium in car construction is predicted to nearly double by 2020 and, as refinement of the material and manufacturing processes advances, it will be even more important to ensure your aluminium vehicle is repaired by people who are experienced and, more importantly, approved to carry out the work to the highest standards.

 

So in the unfortunate event of an accident, insist on Pentagon!
