1.1 This practice covers the general requirements for hot isostatic pressing (HIP) of aluminum, aluminum alloy, and related alloy castings. 1.2 Units--The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Historically, the only HIP standards available for aluminum alloy castings have been those developed by individual customers. No public standardized procedure of guidelines to follow for HIPing Al castings exists. This will create a baseline for all HIP service providers to follow and will give those interested in using HIP services a standard practice to follow.
