American Beryllia Inc. is recognized throughout the world as a leading manufacturer of Beryllium Oxide (BeO), advanced ceramic components, and compounded materials. These products range from heat sinks, crucibles, rods, washers, and thermocouple tubing to large monolithic radar and nuclear, and custom-made substrate components for a diverse range of aerospace, defense, electronic, and commercial applications.
Beryllium Oxide, commonly called Beryllia, and developed in the 1950s as a space-age technical ceramic material, offers a uniquely desirable combination of properties which are not found in any other ceramic material. Distinguished by its excellent thermal conductivity, it is an ideal material for applications requiring large heat dissipation as well as dielectric and mechanical strength. It is particularly well suited for use as a diode laser and semiconductor heat sinks and as a rapid thermal transfer medium for miniaturized circuitry and tightly contained electronic assemblages.
American Beryllia provides both fired ceramic parts under the trade name Berlox® and unfired BeO powder compounds. Typical applications for BeO ceramic include heat sinks for high power electronics, laser diodes, and advanced avionics. It is also an ideal refractory material which can be used for both nuclear reactors and very high temperature furnace applications.
American Beryllia BeO serves a diverse range of requirements for applications in the aerospace, defense, laser, medical, nuclear, and commercial marketplaces.
