Lead Extrusion

Lead Extrusion

Lead extrusion is the process of creating an object through a die of the desired cross section. It has the ability to create very complex cross sections and to work materials that are brittle because the material only encounters compressive and shear stresses.

Pure Lead Products produce lead extrusions in your desired length, width and shape. Extrusions are produced by using hydraulic pressure to force lead through a die. In this type of process, you can produce an end product in your desired shape. This allows you to customize everything from lead wire to heavy lead bars in your exact specifications.

Applications of Lead Extrusion:

  • It can produce an object with very complex cross sections.
  • In a vertical extrusion process, molten lead may also be used in place of billets. Large tubes of up to 300 mm in lead alloys can be extruded over liquid metal.
  • Lead and lead/tin pipes, pressure tubes (copper lead) and cable sheathing are typical products and applications.
