Home Products Beryllium Products BERYLLIUM MAKES INNOVATION POSSIBLE For more than 80 years, Materion has led the way, highlighting design possibilities, safe handling and the engineering potential of beryllium-based metals. Working alongside our customers, we have developed ways to use high-purity beryllium products to advance medical devices, nuclear technologies, space exploration and more. We understand the unique properties of beryllium metals and components — and can help you maximize the benefits of it in your products, safely and securely. Get the following benefits from Materion beryllium in your application or design: Lighter weight and higher thermal conductivity than aluminum Stronger than steel Performs reliably in cryogenic environments High heat tolerance Non-magnetic High neutron reflectivity & low neutron absorption Hardens and strengthens other metals when used in alloys When beryllium is added in trace amounts to other metals, the properties of the base metal can be significantly enhanced. Beryllium-enhanced products include AlBeMet, a metal matrix composite and high strength, high conductivity copper beryllium and nickel beryllium alloys. LEARN HOW BERYLLIUM METALS DO WHAT OTHER METALS CAN’T Advanced aerospace equipment, military jets, delicate satellites and space structures -- the remarkable properties of beryllium metals have been proven to perform in these demanding applications. With high strength and stiffness, low density, heat resistance and exceptional reflectivity, beryllium metals deliver reliability and sustainability in both every day and extreme circumstances. Find out which grade of beryllium metal can advance your next application. HEAR THE DIFFERENCE WITH TRUEXTENT ACOUSTIC BERYLLIUM DOMES & CONES High-purity beryllium foil is rolled to form our Truextent® line of audio cones and domes, specifically designed for use in high-end loudspeakers, event sound systems and headphones. By rolling beryllium into a thin foil and then forming it into custom domes and cones, we can strengthen beryllium and offer design flexibility to audio engineers seeking to transmit the premium sound audiophiles are after. Read more about the advantages of Truextent beryllium speaker domes and cones. SEE THE DIFFERENCE WITH BERYLLIUM X-RAY TUBES & X-RAY WINDOW ASSEMBLIES Beryllium’s high transmissivity to X-rays, high melting point, high thermal conductivity and low electrical resistivity make it a trusted component in X-ray equipment around the globe. Discover what others already have: with beryllium components, X-rays come out clearer, with the higher contrast needed for medical advancements. Our offering includes several options for OEM use or analytical X-ray applications, including X-ray tubes, X-ray window assemblies that can have customized X-ray foil made for your equipment. EXPERIENCE THE STRENGTH OF BERYLLIUM VACUUM & ULTRA HIGH VACUUM (UHV) ASSEMBLIES Beryllium’s strength and high heat tolerance help you create vacuum chambers and UHV assemblies that withstand extreme pressure. It can be used in a variety of forms, including UHV chambers, beryllium beam pipes, actively-cooled assemblies, CF flange window assemblies, radiation shields, vacuum shrouds as well as cylindrical, dome and formed windows.
