It contains in situ-formed icosahedral quasicrystals (iQCs), as conﬁrmed by electron backscatter diffraction. The aim of this work is to present the mechanical and corrosion properties of this alloy and compare its properties with some conventional commercial materials. The compressive strength and compressive yield strength were 751 MPa and 377 MPa, while the compressive fracture strain was 19%. It was observed that intensive shearing caused the ﬁnal fracture of the specimens and
