METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES - BERYLLIUM ALUMINUM (AlBe)

Materion Beryllium & Composites offers AlBeMet®, an aluminum-beryllium metal matrix composite which combines the high modulus and low density characteristics of beryllium with the fabrication and mechanical property behaviors of aluminum. These lightweight and high modulus composites offer significant performance advantages over traditional aluminum and organic composite materials.

Aluminum-beryllium composites can be fabricated using the same techniques and fabrication tooling used for aluminum alloys. Aluminum-beryllium composites do not display sensitivity to machining damage and do not require etching after machining.
