Order Reprints

April 5, 2013—I-CAR will host a webinar to discuss repairing aluminum-intensive vehicles.

The free webinar will take place on April 9 at 12 p.m. EST and will be 45 minutes long, with time for a Q&A at the end.

The webinar will include an overview of aluminum, including considerations around stampings, extrusions, castings, galvanic corrosion, and damage analysis.

Information on attachment methods and processes will be provided, as well as general best practices for working with aluminum.

In addition, key highlights from the I-CAR live course, Aluminum-Intensive Vehicle Repairs, will be shared throughout the webinar.

“Repair for aluminum structures is quite different from the process used with high-strength steels,” said Jamie Boettcher, I-CAR instructional designer and trainer. “Repairers need to understand whether their shop is ready to handle modern aluminum-intensive designs. Working with these new materials may require additional training and skill sets when compared to working with steel parts.”
