More details

Beryllium Foil Introduction:

Beryllium (Be) is a brittle, steel-gray alkaline earth metal. It is strong, lightweight, and has a modulus of elasticity 50% greater than steel. It is non-magnetic properties and has a higher specific heat than any metal. Beryllium retains excellent properties at elevated and cryogenic temperatures, making this fascinating metal an ideal thermal conductor. 

Because of its low density and high thermal conductivity, beryllium has many applications in aerospace and military industries. Beryllium is also transparent to X-rays and other forms of ionizing radiation, making it a great material for X-ray windows. It is frequently used as a material in acoustic applications for its damping properties and high stiffness-to-weight ratio.
