The addition of manganese to aluminium improves corrosion resistance.

When manganese is added to aluminium, its strength is increased slightly through solution strengthening and its strain hardening is also improved. However, corrosion resistance or ductility is not considerably reduced. A large part of manganese is used as high-carbon ferromanganese and added to carbon steels.
