|Aluminium extrusions in the world of extrusion business had been widely popular. The benefits of aluminium over other types of metals make it the choice for the extrusion process. The advantage of aluminium extrusions is that the application can be corrosive resistant. This reduces the need for finishing touches which is a must when using other types of materials for extrusion.
Aluminium extrusions are offered in for different applications. Just where can you use aluminium extrusions? Applications of aluminium extrusions can be seen in the house, on the street, on bridges and even in the garage. Aluminium extrusions are applied over bridge constructions, appliances, buses, heat stinks, and even food display.
Aluminium can be extruded through hot aluminium extrusion or cold aluminum extrusion. In hot aluminum extrusion, the temperature must be above aluminium recrystalization temperature. This is important in keeping the aluminium from hardening and this also is required so the aluminium can be pushed through the die or the desired pattern with ease. The temperature required for aluminium extrusion ranges from 350 – 500 °C or 650 – 900 °F. Hot aluminium extrusions are recommended when dealing with the production of a huge amount or tons of extruded materials with just a minimal cost.
Aluminium extrusions done within or near room temperature is referred to as cold extrusion. Its advantages over hot extrusion include:
Cases of fire extinguisher, shock absorber cylinders, gear banks and pistons of automotives are among the product examples of cold aluminium extrusion.
