Aluminum is a soft, silvery-white, ductile, durable, lightweight metal. It's nonmagnetic, nonsparking, easily formed, machined, and cast.
Pure aluminum has a low tensile strength, but when combined with thermo-mechanical processing, aluminum alloys display a marked improvement in mechanical properties, especially when tempered. Aluminum alloys form vital components of aircraft and rockets as a result of their high strength-to-weight ratio.
AZO is used for making transparent conductive coatings and the typical ZnO to Al2O3 ratio by weight is 98: 2. AZO is regarded as an alternative to ITO and probably take the place of ITO in the future for the consideration of the cost and the limited supply of indium.
