BE0940 Beryllium Foil

Descriptions of Beryllium Foilberyllium-foil

Beryllium (Be) is a brittle, steel-gray alkaline earth metal. It is strong, lightweight, and has a modulus of elasticity 50% greater than steel. It is non-magnetic properties and has higher specific heat than any metal. Beryllium retains excellent properties at elevated and cryogenic temperatures, making this fascinating metal an ideal thermal conductor.

Advanced Refractory Metals is a leading supplier of beryllium products. We offer competitive pricing and great lead times on all our materials, and we're capable of supplying custom materials per any specs/drawings you provide us with.

– Beryllium is used in imaging equipment for Homeland Security.
– Beryllium foil is used in high-resolution medical radiography.
– Beryllium is used in analytical equipment for blood, HIV, and other diseases.

• Used in communications to manufacturing telecommunication infrastructure and telephones.
– Beryllium materials have low electrical resistance and high thermal conductivity to support the convergence and miniaturization of compact devices.

• Used for aerospace and military applications due to its lightweight properties, low density, and high thermal conductivity.
– Lightweight beryllium components are frequently applied to electronics and military systems requiring precise operation under extreme conditions.
– Pure beryllium used in military fighter jets requiring speed and maneuverability.
– Beryllium components enhance surveillance and targeting systems in military helicopters.
– Military communications use copper-beryllium alloys in-network tubes, rotors, and switches due to its high strength and electrical/thermal conductive properties.

• Miscellaneous uses include:
– Used as a component in particle physics experiments.
– Used as a material in acoustic applications for its damping properties.
– Beryllium is used to manufacture x-ray tubes and detectors required to monitor the flow of water, oil, and gas during good extraction.
