Default Heat sinks

Hi all:
I will have my 150 amp diodes in about a week and I was wondering, does the heat sinks have to be made of aluminum? I have given some thought as to using just plain mild steel and tack welding the heat sinks together. My nephew who works in the IT field tells me that heat sinks are made of either aluminum or copper. Can I use mild steel?

Thanks
Tim
