Superpressurization is an industrial process in which materials are fused under extreme pressures, comparable to the inside of a star. It is used primarily to generate alloys with otherwise impossible tensile strength and hardness.
Superpressurization relies on the use of overlapping artificial gravity fields, achieving a multiplication of strength by correctly timing pulsating gravity. As a consequence, massive pressure is exertet upon a previously calculated area, being able to force otherwise impossible atomic bonds.
The process is costly, especially in terms of energy, and furthermore generates great amounts of heat and nuclear radiation as a consequence of a subatomic process during the superpressurization that has been termed the "Ashcroft-effect". Superpressurized materials are also extremely dense and thus heavy, all factors combined meaning that the process usually occurs within spacebound industrial platforms.
The primary use of superpressurization is the creation of superheavy alloys, especially superpressurized plasteel, in particular for military uses. Due to their unique properties, superpressurized alloys provide a degree of protection from both kinetic and energetic force, which is otherwise unreachable.
