BERYLLIUM METAL

The remarkable properties of beryllium include high strength, stiffness, low density, heat resistance and reflectivity, making it a material of choice for a range of demanding applications.

BERYLLIUM MARKETS & APPLICATIONS

  • Satellites & space structures
  • Test reactors
  • ISR & all-weather combat systems
  • Telescopes
  • Military jets
  • Imaging technologies & x-rays

SUPERIOR STABILITY

Beryllium supplies strength and light-weight characteristics for the most advanced technologies. In addition, it has high modulus and high stiffness properties.

THE ADVANTAGES OF BERYLLIUM

  • Highest specific stiffness (modulus divided by density) material available
  • Modulus increases as temperature decreases

  • Thermal conductivity better than aluminum
  • Isotropy of HIP’d
  • High specific heat
  • Moderate CTE and good natural damping
  • Low neutron absorption and high reflectivity
