I have a custom shape that I would like to extrude using Grade 1045 Carbon Steel and would like for it to comply with ASTM A108. I had an extrusion supplier tell me that they are not capable of Cold Drawing, but that they could Hot-Extrude the custom shape per ASTM A576 and that when I machine the part that would count as Cold-Finishing which would turn my material into A108. Is this true?
I thought that for "Special Bar Sections" (which I am assuming a custom shape counts as) the part would have to be Cold Drawn or Cold Rolled.
Thank you in advance.
