But for thin slender ones this form of distortion can be serious and further correction is needed. Various techniques are available, expecially roller correction, and these are tailored to suit the profile concerned. These techniques tend to be labour intensive and, for this reason, slender sections cost more per kilogram. Sometimes the likelihood of serious distortion in a very slender profile will make a proposed section impracticable, even though it can be extruded. In such cases, a possible answer may be to reduce the distortion by specifying the air-quenched T5 condition (instead of T6), provided the lower properties are acceptable.

The structural sections for the new deck were produced by hotrolling in steel-mill rolls, large extrusions being then unavailable. Another early application was in a rail-bridge over the Grasse River at Massena, NY, USA, where one of the 26 m plate-girder spans was made in aluminium instead of steel as an experiment (1938). All these early structures were in naturally aged 2xxx-series alloy (duralumin) that would be thought unsuitable by modern ideas.
