chemical element: Be
( ball/blobs )
High purity (99.9%) Beryllium metal.
Very unusual and difficult to obtain metal element. Lightweight, with a high melting point of 2,349F, Beryllium finds many uses in the aerospace industry. Our Beryllium comes in the form of small ball or blobs - quantity is about 1 gram. It is free of any Beryllium dust or powder. Beryllium will emit neutrons when hit with Alpha radiation. Use Deuterium Oxide (Heavy Water) or polyethylene to slow neutrons when conducting neutron experiments.
Caution: Beryllium dust is both
toxic. Use normal safety precautions (wear a filter mask/respirator and
gloves) if you are grinding or cutting Beryllium metal. Accidental
inhalation of Beryllium dust particles can be dangerous.
