Hot Extrusion Process

The Hot Extrusion Process

Our patented hot extruded manufacturing process produces wire products that are unsurpassed in quality. This process technology allows us to manufacture small diameter solid welding wire from alloys with very limited ductility.

Polymet’s hot extruded wire products are available in nickel and cobalt-based alloys, many of which are are held to the highest quality standard of specifications in the industry (General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, and Honeywell). Products that are produced through this manufacturing process can range from .012″ – .093″ diameter. These solid wire products are primarily used in the aerospace industry but are also used in lumber and valve applications.
