- thermal conductivity;
- beryllium-containing leach liquors;
The high thermal conductivity and specific heat of high purify beryllium oxide ceramics at low temperatures makes them useful for applications in electronics, automotive and aircraft ignitors, and in microwave devices. Production, properties, and health aspects of BeO are described.
