Materion Introduces Thermalox® V Advanced Beryllium Oxide Ceramic

June 7, 2017

Advanced Materials Company Expands its BeO Ceramics Product Line

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) recently introduced Thermalox® V to augment its product line of advanced beryllium oxide ceramic (BeO) materials. Utilized in applications that require high thermal conductivity while providing electrical insulation, the new product is exclusive to Materion and offers an economical alternative to standard BeO ceramics.

Thermalox V, which is rated at a minimum thermal conductivity of 220 W/m·K, was developed to meet the demands of customer applications that call for significantly higher thermal conductivity than aluminum nitride (typically 180 W/m·K), but do not require the premium performance of Materion's Thermalox® 995 (285 W/m·K). BeO is widely used in power electronics, diode and gas lasers, and the RF and microwave industries.

"Thermalox V allows us to deliver all the benefits of BeO to lower cost devices," said W. Glenn Maxwell, President, Materion Performance Alloys and Composites. "It gives budget-constrained customers a ceramic material that bridges the performance gap between conventional aluminum nitride and BeO, ultimately expanding their design options."
