In-HIP Rapid Cooling of High-Strength Silicon Nitride

There are four main advanced ceramics focus areas where Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is a key technology to achieve ultimate properties for the material system. In a series of White Papers, we explore the possibilities and benefits that becomes available for these materials using Quintus HIP and Uniform Rapid Cooling, URC®:

» “Hot Isostatic Pressing of Polycrystalline Translucent and Transparent Ceramics”, an in-depth exploration of material systems such as YAG (alumina-yttria garnet) and GOS (gadolinium-oxisulfide) as well as transparent armor materials such as alumina-magnesia spinel or AlON (aluminium-oxinitride).
» “In-HIP Rapid cooling of high-end Zirconia Toughened Alumina, ZTA”, where URC® rapid cooling have the potential to double productivity in the HIP densification step
» This paper, discussing HIP silicon nitride, HIPSN, regarding the potential for increased HIP productivity and cost reductions, tailoring grain boundaries and maximizing HIP heater life.

White Paper - Hot Isostatic Pressing in Space – Essential Technology to Ensure Mission Safety

The space industry has seen a great deal of interest in recent years, with all major nations actively pursuing both civil and military space programs. In 2020, the global industry had grown to approximately $400 Billion, and the greatest growth was seen in the private sector. Market expectations are the overall Space market will reach $1 Trillion by 2030.

Mission critical components are processed using HIP to ensure integrity with significantly increased fatigue life, in the range of 10 to 100 times. Increased ductility and fracture toughness are also a result of defect healing. This technique has been utilised for many years on cast material and is becoming increasingly important for newer production methods such as additive manufacturing, or 3D printing.
