Home Markets Medical Medical X-Ray MATERION PROVIDES SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY FOR THE MEDICAL X-RAY MARKET Materion products used in medical X-ray technology provide superior performance and reliability. Our beryllium materials are ideal for use in commercial X-ray applications due to beryllium’s unusual combination of properties. Its low mass absorption coefficient means that it is highly transmissive, or transparent, to X-rays, which is a critical need for our medical X-ray customers. CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS TO MEET UNIQUE CUSTOMER NEEDS Materion manufactures our commercial X-ray window products based on our customers’ end uses. Beryllium foil - in the shape of discs, rectangles or arc segments - is joined to the window subassemblies by epoxy bonding, electron beam welding, brazing or diffusion bonding. The specific method of manufacture and any additional processing is customized based on the intended end-use.
