I'm glad you pointed that out. We had a batch of aluminum a few years ago accidentially come in un-stress relieved and we used the cryo process to get rid of the material stresses build in during the extrusion process. Otherwise, all our aluminum extrusion comes stress relieved, which helps to provide a more dimensionally stable part both during and after machining and placement in service.
