Description / Abstract:


This specification covers beryllium in the form of bars, rods, tubing, and machined shapes fabricated from vacuum hot pressed powder.


These products have been used typically for parts requiring a combination of high strength-to-weight ratio, high modulus of elasticity, high density, low oxide content, and good polishing characteristics, but usage is not limited to such applications.

Safety - Hazardous Materials

While the materials, methods, applications and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards that may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
