Aluminum Repair

CarrXpert Port Hawkesbury Collision is FORD certified for Aluminum Repair in Nova Scotia.

Using more aluminum during the manufacturing process makes vehicles and trucks lighter and they use fuel more effectively.

Consequence? Because it requires different adhesives and tools, repairing aluminum is different from repairing steel. The equipment we employ and the training we offer ensure that the vehicle will continue to be secure in the event of a subsequent collision. The training we provide and the equipment we use make sure that the vehicle will remain safe in case of a follow-up crash.

Due to the use of high strength steel for the frame and aluminum for the body, the 2015 Ford F-150’s weight has decreased significantly, by up to 750 pounds. Because of this development in technology, body shops like ours are now required to invest money in specialized tools and equipment like aluminum MIG welders, aluminum dent-pulling tools, fume extraction tools, dust collection systems, aluminum riveting, and work area separation systems.

The cost of equipping CARXPERT PORT HAWKESBURY COLLISION staff with the knowledge and tools needed to repair aluminum was a significant investment.
