The difference between extruded aluminum and drawn aluminum is just in the way the aluminum is formed.

Extruded Aluminum is pushed through a die to form it's desired shape while drawn aluminum is pushed into a mold to form the desired shape.

Aluminum Pots, Cans and other circular objects made from aluminum are usually drawn aluminum.
