Sintering processes

Mersen has an extensive engineering experience in different kind of sintering processes.

Sintering is a very old process used to manufacture an object from ceramic or metal powders, using the action of heat and/or pressure.

The modern industry has discovered many new applications for high-tech ceramics and powder metallurgy.

Sintering processes

  • High pressure sintering to manufacture diamond tools (saw segments, drill bits), ceramic armor plates.
  • Sintering of SiC diesel particle filter.
  • The new spark plasma sintering technique.


Many applications require the usage of our adapted graphite refractory tools to bear extreme process conditions of pressure and temperature.
