Beralcast® alloys serve as a higher-performance or lower-cost replacement materials for cast aluminum, magnesium, titanium, metal matrix composites, non-metallic composites, and pure beryllium or powder metallurgy beryllium-aluminum. Some of the applications include disk drive armatures, automotive braking and structural components and aerospace and satellite system components.
The principal Beralcast® metal matrix is more than three times stiffer than aluminum with 22% less weight and can be precision-cast to simple and complex configurations. This material is very lightweight with a high modulus of elasticity and can be precision cast for three-dimensional stability. Beralcast is ideally suited for certain demanding semiconductor manufacturing equipment, computer components and other commercial and aerospace applications and allows for a near-net shape to be cast for maximum manufacturing efficiencies. We manufacture our beryllium alloys utilizing either pure metallic beryllium or certified beryllium copper master alloy.

BeAl-191 also provides a unique capability for selected applications in optical systems, where increased stability through the operational temperature range and thermal conductivity are of critical importance.
BeAl-310 is used primarily for select directional, higher strength applications.
BeAl-363 is used primarily for high-strength/high-elastic modulus precision cast structural applications. This alloy is 22% less dense than Al-356 and is 3.5 times as stiff.
