SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY FOR THE MEDICAL X-RAY MARKET

Materion’s beryllium products provide superior performance and reliability when used in medical technologies. Our beryllium materials offer a unique property set that is ideal for use in medical X-ray and imaging applications – high strength, low density, high stiffness, high-temperature tolerance and low mass absorption coefficient – which means that it is highly transmissive, or transparent, to X-rays. 

MATERIALS SOLUTIONS FOR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT 

We offer several grades of high-quality beryllium X-ray foil for a range of medical X-ray and imaging equipment. Beryllium foil offers all the attributes of beryllium, including high strength, even in foil gauges. Our beryllium X-ray foil is available in three integrity grades to meet specific application requirements.

For our X-ray window products, beryllium foil is joined to the window or tube subassemblies by using diffusion bonding, which creates a stronger seal while maintaining high temperature performance.

CASE STUDY: BERYLLIUM IMPROVES MEDICAL IMAGING
