In this process, gas pressure is applied isostatically at high temperatures to enhance sintering and produce dense bodies. After materials are pre-sintered, and their density is increased to almost 95 percent of the theoretical density, they are placed in a pressure container equipped with a furnace. Gas pressure is then applied isostatically at 1,000 to 2,000 atmospheres while being heated.
