Sintering Preparation: Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP)

Sintering: Internal Diffusion

Sintering: Surface Diffusion

Liquid Phase Sintering (LPS)

Sintering Alternative: Reactive Processing

Reactive processing relies on chemical reaction rather than diffusion to form a solid component from powder. It can be a faster, cheaper alternative to sintering.
Sintering Alternative: Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP)
