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.
