In this study, the industrialization of aluminium foam (sponge) and the created aluminium powder as size 60 μm with the sodium chloride (NaCl), used four different volume fractions (10%,20%,30%, and 40%). So, this mixture compressed of different pressures (250 MPa,300 MPa, and 350 MPa) under high temperature at 600 C̊ up to aluminium melting. While the sodium chloride (NaCl) solving in hot water at 70 C̊ after integrated manufacturing of the metal foam (spongy) applying physical tests are microstructure and X-ray diffraction.
