The S-200FH beryllium grade utilizes impact ground powder that is consolidated in a sheet metal and can be formed into the shape of the final part. In production, the can is degassed, sealed and HIP’ed. This process conserves material and reduces the total machining time.
Materion Brush Beryllium & Composites’ S-200FH material is more isotropic, has higher density and higher mechanical properties than the traditional vacuum hot-pressed material. The material is useful for structural applications requiring:
- Low weight
- High mechanical strength
- High fatigue endurance limit
