The process involves two steps, which can be integrated or separate: extrusion of a billet of resin and filler, and die drawing to highly orient the polymer chains and create voids ("dynamic cavitation") around the mineral particle.

High-degree orientation of the polymer chain can be achieved by special processing techniques, for example, ram extrusion (piston-cyclinder), hydrostatic extrusion, and die drawing (solid-state extrusion) (11-14).
Model LA100-900-001 finds use in applications such as vibration control, seismology, die drawing, training simulators and other applications where precise, direct control of motion and force is required.
The Macintosh answer to this problem was the object-oriented graphic, whereby die drawing is not a grouping of pixels but instructions to draw shapes.

Hydrostatic extrusion (1-2), ram extrusion (3), tensile drawing (4-5), radial compression (6) and die drawing (7) are all processes that have been successfully applied to polymers with the main purpose of achieving alignment of the molecular chains and thereby improving the mechanical properties of the material, particularly tensile modulus and strength.
Die drawing reduces the density of the 1 x 4 profiles and adds stiffness by creating elongated holes behind the individual wood fibers as the material is pulled in the machine direction, similar to the grain in natural wood.
As we reported in March 2006, die drawing stretches the composite as it passes through the die, creating micro-voids behind the wood fibers.
Die drawing of wood-plastic composites was developed by Frank Maine in Guelph, Ont.
