ADVANCED TECHNICAL CERAMICS OFFER SUPERIOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT

As a leading supplier of engineered technical ceramics, Materion produces materials that achieve superior levels of thermal management, product strength, reliability, miniaturization and weight savings. Our beryllium oxide (BeO) and aluminum oxide (Al2O3) ceramic materials are ideal for solving challenges in medical equipment, electronics manufacturing, aerospace, laser systems and the energy market.

BERYLLIUM OXIDE (BEO) CERAMICS OFFER SUPERIOR THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY

We offer two BeO ceramics product families: Thermalox® ceramics and BW ceramics. These materials offer superior product strength, reliability, miniaturization, weight savings and thermal conductivity.

Our BeO materials provide thermal conductivity second only to diamonds among insulating materials along with exceptional thermal management properties. Beryllium oxide engineered ceramics can meet a variety of design and application needs in devices:

  • With a compact size or shrinking enclosure
  • Exposed to high ambient temperatures
  • Where airflow or liquid cooling is not practical or prohibitively expensive
  • With heat sinks in electronic circuits
  • Requiring low neutron absorption
  • Need to be transparent to X-rays

BeO is also considered an ideal crucible material for melting and sintering operations. It is non-reactive, and we can transform it into custom crucibles with superior performance at high temperatures.

DUROX® ALUMINA CERAMICS OFFER HIGH THERMAL STABILITY 

Our Durox® aluminum oxide is a cost-effective industrial ceramic material used to make components with high tensile and high dielectric strength. It is ideal for applications that require dimensional stability, high thermal stability and low thermal expansion in forms that can be made to very tight tolerances. Consider these advanced ceramics for a range of applications, including semiconductors, heat sinks, ceramic substrates, dosimeters, laser tubing and resistor cores.
