In the Hot Extrusion Process, different products are manufactured using various materials that are also called Extrusion Materials. Mainly, the extrusion materials that are used include Aluminium, and Copper along with their alloys.
|Extrusion Metals||Products Developed|
|Aluminum Alloys||Pipe, Wire, Rods, Bars, Tubes, Heat sink|
|Copper||Pipe, Wire, Rods, Bars, Tubes, and Welding Electrodes|
|Lead and Tin||Pipes, Wire, Tubes, and Cable Sheathing|
|Magnesium||Aircraft Parts and Nuclear Industry Parts|
|Zinc||Rods, Bars, Tubes, Hardware Components, Fitting, and Handrails|
|Steel||Rods and Tracks|
|Titanium||Aircraft Components including Seat Tracks, Engine Rings, and other structural parts|

Anodyzing (Type II Or Type III)Extrusions can be anodized before they are cut and are limited by the length of the anodizing line. Type II anodizing creates a corrosion-resistant oxide finish on aluminum parts. Parts can be anodized in different colors—clear, black, red, and gold are most common. Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with Type II. Anodized coatings are not electrically conductive.
Powder CoatingThis is a process where powdered paint is electrostatically sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that can be more durable than standard wet painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.
Wet PaintingExtrusions can be wet painted in a wide variety of paint formulations and colors.
Chemical FilmA chromate conversion coat can be applied to protect aluminum from corrosion and improve adhesion of paints and primers. Chemical film conversion coatings are electrically conductive.
