Materion Ceramics is a global supplier of beryllium oxide (BeO) & alumina (Al2O3) technical ceramics that improve thermal conductivity in advanced microprocessor, laser and electronics manufacturing.



Materion Ceramics has been managing the beryllia supply chain for some of the most innovative products and systems around the world.

We engineer beryllia ceramic (beryllium oxide or BeO) components utilizing the unique properties of beryllia for critical components requiring superior performance at high temperatures. We also produce Durox®, our alumina ceramic (aluminum oxide or Al2O3) for higher strength and hardness. We serve a wide range of markets including: medical, lasers, semiconductor handling equipment, energy, military and aerospace, wireless communications, and RF/microwave.
