S-200FC is Materion Brush Beryllium & Composites’ only beryllium grade currently available by cold isostatic pressing. This material utilizes impact ground powders that are consolidated in a flexible rubber bag that approximate the final shape of the part. The powder is loaded into the bag and is degassed, sealed and CIP’ed at room temperatures.
The CIP process is useful for applications requiring lesser properties than those obtained by HIP. The CIP tooling is reusable, making it advantageous for parts required in the hundreds.
Applications for S-200F include:
- Optics for fire control systems
- Instrument Applications
- Inertial measurement units
