Light and Strong

JW Aluminum offers superior quality products for many transportation, machinery or equipment applications in a range of thicknesses and widths. 

The increased use of lightweight aluminum automotive body and component structures allows for significant weight savings over steel, without sacrificing passenger safety. Aluminum’s light weight also contributes to significant fuel savings—making it an even more popular material among today’s auto manufacturers.

Recent regulations around fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions are making it more and more critical for medium- and heavy-duty truck manufacturers to choose aluminum for a multitude of vehicle components, including cargo panels, doors, frame rails and even wheels.

Aluminum is strong yet lightweight, making it the perfect material for commercial vehicles. Leveraging aluminum increases fuel economy while reducing emissions for an environmental win-win. We specialize in the flat rolled aluminum used in Cargo Vans and Recreational Vehicles.

Automotive Heat Shields

At JW Aluminum, we have developed products in both foil and sheet weight that have proven to be highly effective in insulating automotive passenger compartments from heat generated by engines and other sources.

Thanks to our advanced casting techniques and specialized annealing practices, our automotive heat shield, made primarily from 1xxx series alloys, is extremely drawable and formable, so it can be readily sheeted out, embossed and bonded with other substances, if necessary, all within a tight time frame-so you can meet the stringent delivery requirements of most transportation component customers.
