German metallurgist Alfred Wilm of Dürener Metallwerke AG created duralumin. After quenching, Wilm found in 1903 that an aluminum alloy containing 4% copper will gradually harden if left at room temperature for a few days. Duralumin was first introduced in 1909 after more advancements. Duralumin Metal As an alloy of…
