Is Beryllium Copper Toxic?

Beryllium copper has the characteristics of high hardness, elasticity, fatigue and wear resistance, and is widely used as important elastic components, wear-resistant parts and explosion-proof tools. Some friends are worried about whether beryllium copper used in electronic devices is toxic and will it harm the human body?

Beryllium copper is a supersaturated solid solution copper-based alloy. It is a non-ferrous alloy with a good combination of mechanical properties, physical properties, chemical properties and corrosion resistance. After solution and aging treatment, it has a high strength limit equivalent to that of special steel. , Elastic limit, yield limit and fatigue limit, but also have high electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, high hardness and wear resistance, high creep resistance and corrosion resistance, widely used in the manufacture of various mold inserts, replacement Steel production precision, complex shape molds, welding electrode materials, die casting machine, injection molding machine punch, wear and corrosion resistance work, etc. Beryllium copper tape is used in micro-motor brushes, mobile phones, batteries, and products. It is an important industrial material indispensable for the construction of the national economy.

Most of the beryllium oxide will adhere firmly to the surface of the original workpiece, but during intense movements such as cutting, polishing, welding, etc., fine particles (less than 10μm) dust will be suspended in the air. If the operator inhales excessively, it will cause ” Beryllium lung” occupational disease. Therefore, the above working environment has a perfect directional exhaust device.
