  1. PDF icon B-26-D - Beryllium Vacuum Castings

    This specification defines the requirements for a material produced by vacuum melting and casting designated as B-26-D

  2. PDF icon Berylcoat D

    A recommended procedure is described for surface treating beryllium parts with Berylcoat D, a proprietary solution available from Materion Brush Inc. Treatment with Berylcoat D forms a thin passivation coating less than 100 Angstrom units thick on the metal surface. The coating provides increased corrosion resistance and shelf life in environments of high humidity and moderately elevated temperature. The coating does not alter the dimensional tolerances nor the metallic appearance of the metal.

  3. PDF icon Beryllium Elastic Properties NASA-COMMISSIONED Swales Aerospace Study Results

    A NASA-commissioned study found that the elastic properties of three samples of beryllium alloy were very consistent when measured from room temperature to cryogenic temperatures.

  4. PDF icon Beryllium Near Net Shape Processing Is More Cost-Effective

    Materion Brush Beryllium & Composites’ innovative near-net shape blanks can be converted into finished parts with a minimum of machining. Near-net shape processing results in production efficiencies and conservation of starting materials that can yield parts' cost reductions as high as 50 percent.

  5. PDF icon Beryllium Improves the Way We Live

    Widely used in products throughout our society, beryllium improves the way we live and work. A naturally occurring element, beryllium is one-third lighter than aluminum yet six times the specific stiffness of steel. Beryllium brings unrivaled advantages to its end-use applications, whether used in its pure metallic form, as a beryllia ceramic or as combined or alloyed in small amounts with other metals. In many instances, no other material can deliver the same performance and reliability demanded of today’s high technology products and systems
