The Special Advantages of Beryllium Copper in Castings

Castability
  • Beryllium copper can be melted and cast using conventional equipment.
Fluidity
  • Almost unbelievably fine, delicate castings are possible only with beryllium copper because of one property - FLUIDITY. Low surface tension and viscosity permit replication of intricate textures.
Strength
  • The high strength of beryllium copper is unsurpassed by any other copper alloy.
Machinability
  • Beryllium copper castings can be easily machined.
Thermal Conductivity
  • In molds for producing plastic parts, beryllium copper's thermal conductivity allows decreased dwell time and as much as 35% increased productivity.
Thermal Shock and Fatigue Resistance
  • Beryllium copper resists thermal shock and fatique where extreme, rapid heating and cooling cycles occur resulting in less maintenance and longer tool life.
Corrosion Resistance
  • Beryllium copper castings are much better than other copper alloys in corrosive environments. Applications requiring extended exposure to salt water are common.
Fabricability
  • Fabrication may be accomplished by conventional machining, CNC machining, E.D.M., soldering, or brazing.
Plating Characteristics
  • Conventional coatings, such as nickel, chrome, copper and gold are easily applied.
