BERYLLIUM



Beryllium is a fairly soft metal that is brittle yet strong. It is used as a coating on X-


ray tubes because it is transparent to the X-ray range. It also has military and 


nuclear industry applications. Beryllium is available as metal and compounds with 


purities from 99% to 99.999% (ACS grade to ultra-high purity). Elemental or 


metallic forms include pellets, rod, wire and granules for evaporation source 


material purposes. Beryllium oxide is an insoluble source of beryllium available in 


powder and dense pellet form for such uses as optical coating and thin film 


applications. Beryllium fluoride is another insoluble form for uses in which oxygen 


is undesirable such as metallurgy, chemical and physical vapor deposition and in 


some optical coatings. Beryllium is also available in soluble forms including 


chlorides, nitrates and acetates. These compounds can be manufactured as 


solutions at specified stoichiometries.
