EC Aluminum was deformed to true strains of approximately 5.8 both by hydrostatic extrusion and drawing. The deformed specimens were compared by examining tensile properties, density and grain structure as a function of true strain. Theoretical analysis was employed to estimate back pressure and final aluminum and fluid temperature encountered in hydrostatic extrusion.
