Powder metallurgy plays a central role in the production of nearly all beryllium components. This chapter describes the primary steps in the powder metal process and the work that has been done to improve each one. It explains how beryllium powders are made and how they are consolidated prior to sintering. It also compares and contrasts the properties of beryllium products made using different methods and provides composition and particle size data on commercially available powders.
