Claiming to have created an "entirely new [7000 series] alloy" is essentially a meaningless statement. Aluminum alloys contain varying amounts of silicon, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, chromium, zinc and sometimes other metals to get the desired physical properties. Altering the proportions of one or more of those constituents may result in a new alloy, but given their number there's an extremely large number of possible variations.
