Speaking of cars, the first thing that is often talked about is the body first rather than the engine performance. This is reasonable considering the body is the outside of the car. Every curved detail or other shape becomes the eye’s attention and determines whether the car body A, B, C and so on are charming or not. Apart from the ‘car’, in general, the body material of the car is not much different from one manufacturer to another.
Steel is a material that is often used to make car bodies. The reason is, this material is relatively lightweight and easy to form. As for what is meant by the body include the roof, door panel, also back between the doors.
Besides being used in car chassis, steel material is also often used in exhaust pipes. Generally, steel components weigh 80 percent of the total weight of the car. However, each manufacturer has their own concoctions about thickness.
Other materials that are also used in the manufacture of cars include fiberglass, polyurethane, or carbon fiber. These materials are usually used to make a body kit or additional components that are on the front and rear bumpers.
In addition, there are also plastic materials that are sometimes used on the front and rear bumpers. Accessories on right and left fenders are also usually made of plastic material. Well, that’s how some materials are used as raw materials for cars. Hopefully you can add insight into the automotive world
