XTALIUM® is a suite of stable nanostructured aluminum alloys that combines the strength of steel with the weight of aluminum. XTALIUM® can be electroformed into 1mm-thick complex shapes. Or, it can be more traditionally applied as a coating to aluminum, magnesium, and other substrate materials to improve corrosion and durability protection. The chart at left provides insight into the XTALIUM® nanostructured Aluminum-Manganese (Al−Mn) alloy strength to weight properties when compared to other typical solutions. As shown, XTALIUM® differentiates itself through corrosion performance and the ability for its application as a coating — enabling lower grades of aluminum to be used — and by protecting the use of magnesium and other corrosion-prone materials while mating seamlessly to aluminum.
