Products & Services
IBC Advanced Alloys manufacturers a range of Beryllium-contained alloys and products. Our flagship beryllium alloy is a metal matrix composite of beryllium and aluminum. This alloy, which we sell Beralcast®, overcomes the limitations of pure beryllium and existing aluminum alloys while retaining the benefits of the two metals.
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.
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.
IBC also manufacturers other beryllium-contained alloys, which you can see in our product offering below.
IBC’s proprietary Beralcast® material combines beryllium’s light weight and high stiffness with aluminum’s excellent processing characteristics and low cost. Its high modulus of elasticity allows for stable three-dimensional precision casting. It overcomes the limitations of pure beryllium and existing powder metal beryllium aluminum products.
Beryllium Casting Alloys
IBC produces a wide range of advanced beryllium casting alloys beyond our flagship Beralcast(TM) family of products, including beryllium-copper alloys, high-strength beryllium-copper casting alloys, high-conductivity beryllium-copper casting alloys, beryllium-nickel casting alloys, and many more.

FA 230 High Strength BeNi Casting Alloy
BeNiCr 41C, 42C, 43C, 44C, 46C
Beryllium-Containing Master Alloys
IBC’s Master Alloys are formulated to allow for minute additions of beryllium to base metal furnace metals such as aluminum, magnesium, and nickel alloys. This improves the efficiency of alloy melting and enhances material properties such as strength, toughness, ductility, fluidity, and corrosion resistance.
