About the Isostatic Pressing Association

The Isostatic Pressing Association (IPA) is one of six trade associations of the Metal Powder Industries Federation. Members are leading companies associated with the hot and cold isostatic pressing and the processing industry (HIP/CIP).


The association serves to improve and promote hot isostatic pressing and cold isostatic pressing technology in producing and applying products and equipment that utilize metal powders and advanced particulate materials in their manufacture. This is accomplished by the collection and dissemination of statistical information, development of standards, and technology transfer.
