"Extrusion is a technique used to form shapes by forcing a material through a region of high-temperature and/or pressure, and then through a die to form the desired shape. Extrusion is often used in the production of plastic bottles and containers."

If you go to http://www.google.com and punch in "extrusion technology" you'll get alot of links that describe how it's used to make various products.

Um... This sounds like a homework question. You'll learn a lot more if you do your own homework. Just a thought.

luvmygingerkids is exactly correct. Years ago, I worked in a plastic extrusion factory. We made everything from Television cases to telephones. We also made Maybelline Compact cases, handles for steam irons, etc. These items were made by putting plastic pellets in a machine that heated them until they melted, then fed them into molds where they were cooled down. Once cooled, the mold would open and we would take the parts out and inspect them, trimming them where necessary.
