The need for Advanced Ceramics is rising in most sectors today as the unique properties such
as hardness, electrical properties, and corrosion resistance, can take the performance of most
applications to the next level. This is true for everything from electrical vehicles and wind
turbines to laser, x-ray sensors and transparent armor.
Silicon nitride bearings, zirconia toughened alumina medical implants, YAG lasers and
transparent cubic and noncubic ceramics are just some examples where hot isostatic pressing
will enable optimal performance and functionality to polycrystalline Advance Ceramics components.
Introducing steered cooling to the HIP process will open for substantial gain in productivity and
possibilities for tailoring of unique properties.
