Hip Applications

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a process using simultaneous high pressure and temperature over a set amount of time to improve materials properties. These vessels are computer controlled to specific parameters to yield the desired improved properties. A furnace is inside a pressure vessel pressurized with argon. The uniform pressure and elevated temperature allows for desification and eliminating any product defects while at the same time improving the mechanical properties.

In addition to removing defects, the process can also be used to layer materials together or even consolidate powders into solid form resulting in a improved product than that obtained with traditional methods. Hot isostatic pressing is a well-established method for the enhancement of a wide variety of materials, listed below.
