Product Details, Specifications, and Technical Information

See Beryllium Copper Tolerances

Beryllium Copper Round Bar 172 is a non-magnetic, non-sparking, strong, hard, wear resistant, thermally/electrically conductive metal. These attributes make it ideal for use in hazardous environments where sparks can be deadly. C172 is commonly used in oil, gasoline, natural gas, coal, and aerospace components. However it is also popular for percussion instruments, motor components, and golf clubs.
