What Aluminum Extrusions Are Used For

An aluminum extrusion is a generic term applied to any metal or alloy product formed by forcing an unmelted metallic slug under pressure through a die of the desired cross-sectional shape. Aluminum extrusion is a cold-forming technique of forcing hot molten metal through a shaped die. This is done without the help of gravity, so it requires significant pressure to be applied on top of the material being forced into form. As it passes through an aluminum die, the metal moves through several different stages.

Extrusions are commonly used in the construction of homes, cars, appliances, and in many other commercial and industrial uses. Read more about the uses of aluminum extrusions and Minitec Profile Systems:
