Home Products Technical Ceramics TECHNICAL CERAMICS THAT WITHSTAND THE HEAT As a global leader in beryllium oxide (BeO) engineered ceramics, Materion understands the results you need from an industrial ceramic material. Our BeO advanced ceramics are offered in two product families: Thermalox® and BW ceramics. These BeO ceramics allow you to achieve superior levels of product strength, reliability, miniaturization, weight savings, and most critically, thermal management. We also offer Durox®, our aluminum oxide (Al2O3) industrial ceramics, a cost efficient material used to make ceramic components with high tensile and high dielectric strength. Look to Materion for solutions in advanced ceramics for medical equipment, electronics manufacturing, aerospace, laser systems and the energy market. BERYLLIUM OXIDE CERAMICS FOR THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY BeO technical ceramics offer thermal conductivity second only to diamonds among insulating materials and exceptional thermal management properties. BeO engineered ceramics offer proven solutions for a variety of design and application needs, including 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. This advanced ceramics is non-reactive and we can transform it into custom crucibles that will provide superior performance at very high temperatures. Learn more about our BeO technical ceramics. BERYLLIUM OXIDE CERAMICS ARE SUITED FOR MANY APPLICATIONS BeO is flexible in application and superior in performance. We process beryllium oxide powder by pressing, sintering or extruding it into a variety of customized shapes or forms that deliver exceptional thermal properties. Beryllium oxide advanced ceramics are frequently used in high-performance semiconductor applications, microwave devices, heat sinks, electronics packaging, vacuum tubes, gas lasers and magnetrons. We can produce BeO advanced ceramics with custom characteristics and properties to meet your specific application. DUROX® ALUMINA CERAMICS ARE AN ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE Durox alumina ceramics (Al2O3) provide a cost-effective solution for applications that require dimensional stability, high thermal stability and low thermal expansion in a form 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.
