Description: This lecture provides sufficient information on the extrusion of aluminum and the performance of extruded products to ensure that students, users and potential users of those products can understand the fabrication features that affect properties and economics. It shows how, in consequence, alloy choice for any end application depends not only on the characteristics required for that end use but also on production requirements. General knowledge in materials engineering and some knowledge about aluminium alloy constitution and heat treatment is assumed.
Keywords: production • properties • semi-finished products • extrusion • 6000 series alloys
