A new standard defining the basic quality control requirements for hot isostatic pressing (HIP) has led to the development of a new ASTM International standard, ASTM A1080, “Practice for Hot Isostatic Pressing of Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloy Castings”.

A1080 was developed by Subcommittee A01.18 on Castings, part of ASTM International Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys.

“The new standard is intended to demonstrate the minimum amount of process control/monitoring required to control the HIP process,” stated John Schleicher, Technical/Development Sales Manager, Orchid Orthopedics, and an A01.18 member.

“ASTM A1080 will benefit the users who don’t currently have their own internal documents or procedures for HIP. Many people are not aware of the HIP process and this standard will provide manufacturers with much needed information to use the process.”
