Relevance

Beryllium is lightweight and hard metal with atomic number 4. It is an element of the second period of periodical system where it is designated as Be. It is used for manufacture of space rocket parts. It is very toxic in powder-like state. But in a state of large segments, it is relatively non-hazardous. It looks like a simple ceramic of beryllium oxide. It poorly conducts electricity and heat — that is why it is used as electric insulator.

Beryllium properties

By chemical properties, Be is more similar to aluminium, than to magnesium, which belongs to the same group and has the same valence +2. Metallic beryllium is not very active in standard conditions. It is not oxidized up to a temperature of 600 °C. It does not react with hydrogen in solid bulk form, water, and water vapor even at a temperature of red heat. Powder-like beryllium can easily inflame by forming nitride+oxide It reacts with:
— halogens at a temperature higher than 600°C
— ammonia at a temperature of 1200 °C, forming nitride Be3 N2
— carbon at a temperature of 1700 °C, forming carbide Ве2 С.
Beryllium easily dissolves in diluted mineral acids. However, concentrated nitric cold acid immunizes it. It displaces hydrogen from hydrogenous alkali solution by turning into hydroxide.

Application

Nuclear energetics, laser and X-ray techniques, mining engineering, alloys alloying, air-space industry cannot do without beryllium. This metal is indispensable in manufacture of guidance systems and heat shields. Alloys on beryllium basis are lightweight, hard and resistant to thermal cycling all at once. Liquid oxygen explosive on beryllium basis is applied in manufacture of explosive material. Bronze alloy of grade Cu2Be that contains 2% of beryllium has high elasticity, strength and corrosion resistance. Be-Cu alloy is very workable material. It possesses perfect mechanical properties and chemical resistance. This gives a possibility to widely use it in industry and artistic casting.

Bronzes on beryllium basis

They are manufacture according to GOST 18 175−78 and special technical conditions. For example, bronze-beryllium hexagonal bar is made according to GOST 1628−78. Rod is made with a help of rolling, casting, pressing, forging, drawing according to GOST 24 301−93. By their mechanical properties, beryllium bronzes excel tin bronzes. They do not spark and that is why they are often used for works in explosive environment. There are available such mill-products made of beryllium bronzes:
— bar (GOST 15 835−70);
— wire, sheet, bands, strips (GOST 1789−79);
— plates, cylindrical blankets CuBe2NiTi (TC 48−21−92−89); Beryllium strips CuBe2NiTi, Cu2Be are made according to TC 48−21−265−87.
