Hot Isostatic Pressing
In this discussion of hot isostatic pressing (HIP) consideration will be limited to systems and processes which operate above 1000 °C and 1000 kg/cm2. The HIP process came into use in 1957 when Sailer, Hodge, Paprocki, and Dayton, all of the Battelle Memorial Institute, filed a U.S. patent for a process they called “a method of bonding.” The term hot gas bonding remained in use until the more descriptive designation, hot isostatic pressing, came into wide use recently. This patent is the earliest published information concerning HIP and, of course, many other patents as well as comprehensive reports have been published since then describing the growing state of the art.
