AA6111 contains higher Cu content than AA6022. Both alloys are used in North America. Alloys similar to low Cu content AA6016 and AA6022, and high Cu content AA6111 are also used in Japan. KS6K21 and KS6K31 are alloy codes of Kobe Steel, which correspond to AA6016, AA6022, and AA6111 respectively. AA5022 and AA5023 are special Al-Mg alloys produced by using high purity primary aluminum. They contain optimum Cu content, and have high formability and medium strength after paint baking. KS5J30 and KS5J32 are corresponding Kobe Steel alloys.

Increasing Aluminum Body Panel Usage In order to promote the adoption of aluminum body panels, it is necessary to provide for the potential panel shapes and the low-cost materials required by automobile manufacturers. It is important to improve material properties as well as forming and joining technologies, so as to be able to manufacture suitable body panel shapes. On the other hand, it is necessary to minimize the number of manufacturing processes, and to be able to use recycled aluminum alloys to ensure a low-cost material.
