StrongLite: Lighting the path forward with stronger, lighter and sustainable vehicles

StrongLite symbolises the new generation of aluminium. It promises to revolutionise the way you think about vehicle construction. StrongLite offers unparalleled strength and lightness, paving the way for a greener future without compromising on performance. Let’s delve deeper into its remarkable strength, impressive achievements and rich history.

Redefining aluminium technology

StrongLite surpasses traditional alloys in sustainability, strength and weight reduction. Developed as a proprietary alloy by Euramax for Mobility, StrongLite incorporates additional magnesium and undergoes three additional rolling steps, resulting in a game-changing material that sets new standards in the industry.

Strength and lightness in perfect harmony

One of the most remarkable features of StrongLite is its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Compared with standard aluminium alloys, StrongLite boasts double the yield and tensile strength (see figure 1), enabling manufacturers to create walls that are up to 15% lighter, while maintaining the same structural integrity. Alternatively, StrongLite can be used at the same thickness as traditional alloys, resulting in sidewalls that are 50-80% less prone to dents and hail damage.

Driving sustainability

Reducing vehicle weight is key to achieving sustainability goals –StrongLite delivers significant weight savings without compromising durability. By utilising StrongLite in vehicle construction, manufacturers can reduce the material need by 15% when compared to standard aluminium and by 20% or more when compared to plastic (see figure 2). Almost by definition, the carbon footprint associated with producing the vehicle is reduced when less material is used. During the use phase, this means lighter RVs, buses and other transport vehicles that consume less fuel, emit fewer pollutants and contribute to a cleaner environment. StrongLite isn’t just a material; it’s a step towards a more sustainable future.

A story of collaboration and innovation

The journey of StrongLite began over two decades ago when Ger, a Euramax for Mobility veteran, identified the need for stronger and lighter aluminium. Through close collaboration with one of our suppliers, a longstanding family-owned business, Ger’s vision became a reality. Today, Euramax for Mobility and our partners continue to work hand in hand, driven by a shared commitment to excellence and sustainability. The development of StrongLite is testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in driving positive change.
