Beryllium is used in alloys with copper or nickel to make gyroscopes, springs, electrical contacts, spot-welding electrodes, and intrinsically safe tools. The mixing of beryllium with these metals increases their electrical and thermal conductivity.
Other beryllium alloys are used as structural materials for high-speed aircraft, rockets, spacecraft, and communications satellites.
Beryllium is relatively transparent to X-rays, which is why ultra-thin beryllium foil is used in X-ray lithography. Beryllium is also used in nuclear reactors as a neutron reflector or moderator.
The oxide has a very high melting point, which makes it useful in nuclear work and ceramic applications.
Pure beryllium metal is used for lightweight metal structures, aerospace applications, nuclear reactors, audio components, high-speed computer parts, X-ray windows, optical platforms, and space telescopes.
It is also used in the manufacture of disc brakes for aircraft, nuclear weapons, and reactors, rocket parts, heat shields, X-ray parts, mirror substrates, and spacecraft. Beryllium oxide is used in ceramics for electronics and high technology. Beryllium alloys are used in electrical connectors, springs, precision instruments, aircraft engine parts, wheels, and gears.
Metallic beryllium and metal alloys are found in consumer products such as televisions, calculators, computers, special non-sparking tools, and sports equipment. It can also be a part of dental alloys and dental bridges.
