The Metallurgical Properties of Beryllium
hardening agent in alloys. Beryllium has one of the highest melting points of the light metals. It
has excellent thermal conductivity, is nonmagnetic, it resists attack by concentrated nitric acid
and at standard temperature and pressures beryllium resist oxidation when expose to air.
