AlBe Alloy with Be Content: 1% - 3%
Aluminum Beryllium alloy is used as additive for smelting of Aluminum and Magnesium alloy. The usage of AlBe alloy in Aluminum alloy and Magnesium is 8-15ppm and 8-20ppm respectively. It will achieve three targets as follows: 1. It will improve the purity, liquidity and corrosion resistance of Al and Mg elements. 2. It can avoid the burning loss of Al and Mg elements in the process of smelting. 3. It will improve the structure of alloys, refine the grain size and enhance the strength.
To meet the growing needs in the aerospace and commercial markets for materials that provide higher strength, lower weight and outstanding thermal management, this alloy was developed to be new Beryllium metal matrix composites with Be content at around 60~62% and Al content at 38%, which is commonly used in Missile, Rocket, Supersonic Aircraft, Gyroscope, and Nuclear fuel cladding etc.
