The Increasing Popularity of Aluminum
As government regulations tighten in regards to fuel economy, automakers increasingly rely on lighter materials, like aluminum, to boost MPG ratings. This allows for the fuel efficiency of your vehicle to better reflect the standards that the government has set. Your savings in fuel efficiency will certainly outweigh the costs for aluminum body repair.
Aluminum vs. Steel
While steel is an easily repaired metal, aluminum is not. You’ll discover that aluminum is more pliable than steel, making it necessary to use special tools to completely repair damage. Also, aluminum reacts differently to heat. If you apply too much heat, aluminum can jeopardize the integrity of the metal. Due to these potential issues with aluminum, our collision center has a special aluminum dent station that will have your vehicle in tip top shape again.

When selecting a repair shop, it’s always important to choose somewhere certified due to the equipment offered. A dealership like JY Collision Center is stocked with the necessary tools to completely reconstruct your damaged vehicle.
