What is aluminum extrusion?

Aluminum extrusion is a process in which aluminum ingots are heated and pushed through a designed die opening. It creates the desired cross-section that can be modified with different dies. The extrusion of aluminum can also increase its strength.

Benefits from aluminum extrusion

1. High specific strength
Aluminum extrusions have great strength, but it is about one-third the weight of steel or brass.
2. Corrosion resistance
The surface of aluminum extrusions is protected from corrosion by a naturally occurring oxide film.
3. Low cost
The materials and dies have lower costs compared to other metal forming production.
4. Sustainable
The aluminum profile can be recycled indefinitely, and the recycled profile can completely maintain functionality and appearance.
