Chevrolini(sp?) has developed an Aluminum PA material primarily for wind
tunnel testing. This material weighs out heavier than PA but I would
speculate the properties would be very similar to DTMs Copper PA. Tensile
strength is not good compared to aluminum. The metal material from DTM
(LaserForm) has properties approximating aluminum. . . actually better.
