Micron size aluminum particles (Figure 1) are deformed into "interlocked splats" at room temperature under high pressure and shear. Sample's induced inner architecture is examined (Figure 2). Tests are carried out to characterize material's heterogeneous properties (Figure 3). Presented formulation of the test data indicates an excellent shear strength; stronger than its solid counterpart.
