| ||IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (IBC), formerly International Beryllium Corporation, is a Canada-based Company engaged in the development and manufacturing of advanced alloys, in particular beryllium alloys and specialty copper alloys. It also focuses on beryllium mineral exploration. IBC can be used in its pure form or combined with other metals to form unique alloys for essential applications for the nuclear, aerospace, medical, automotive, electronics and defence industries. It operates in three aspects: manufacturing, research and mineral exploration. It provides manufacturing and support services, including casting and master alloy products, cast and forged billet products, semi-continuous cast input billets and wrought products. It operates in copper alloys division and beryllium aluminium division. IBC owns a 100% interest in the Boomer mine located in the Lake George beryllium district. IBC US Holdings, Inc., Freedom Alloys, Inc., Nonferrous Products, Inc. are its subsidiaries. |
IBC Advanced Alloys has two manufacturing divisions – Copper Alloys and Engineered Materials. Our Copper Division manufactures and distributes a wide variety of copper alloys as castings and forgings: beryllium copper, chrome copper and aluminum bronze in plate, block, bar, rings; and specialty copper alloy forgings for plastic mold tooling and resistance welding applications. IBC Engineered Materials Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of IBC Advanced Alloys Corp, has a family of beryllium aluminum alloys that overcomes the limitations of pure beryllium and existing aluminum alloys, while retaining the benefits of the two metals.
The Copper Division has three main facilities in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Our Franklin, IN facility was founded in 1946 and comprises our large 1500 ton forge press, three forge hammers, a ring rolling mill, a complete heat treatment center, lathes, milling machines, CNC equipment, and saws. Casting of a wide variety of copper alloys commenced at the New Madrid, MO location in 1988. The manufacturing of beryllium containing casting and master alloys began at our Royersford, Pennsylvania production facility in 1994. This location also manufactures beryllium nickel and beryllium aluminum master alloy products.
The capability to produce large high quality production input billets has given IBC Advanced Alloys a strong competitive advantage in beryllium copper wrought products. Large diameter input billets equate to larger and more size flexible rod and plate configurations. It should be noted, forged beryllium copper rod and plate products exhibit improved grain micro-structures with more consistently homogeneous uniformity. IBC Advanced Alloys supplies only superior precision forged beryllium copper rod and plate products.
In 2011, IBC Engineered Materials Corp completed construction of a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Wilmington, MA. The new plant represents a major investment by IBC and significantly increases the Company’s production capacity for near net shape investment castings using the proprietary Beralcast® family of high performance ultra-lightweight alloys.
Designed specifically to meet our customers’ increasingly technical requirements and high quality standards, while accommodating faster and more demanding delivery schedules, the factory is the launch pad for the explosive growth of Beralcast®. The plant also includes a second furnace that will ultimately further increase capacity.
IBC CEO Anthony Dutton discusses the features and benefits of Beralcast® Alloys.

Beryllium is a rare metal possessing a combination of physical and mechanical characteristics specifically suited to a wide range of demanding applications. Beryllium metal is extremely stiff and lightweight with a modulus of elasticity almost 50 percent greater than that of steel with only one-fourth the weight. Stiffness and lightweight enable accurate positioning of high-end instruments and optical equipment providing the ability to withstand extreme stress such as those encountered during spacecraft liftoff and various military applications.
Beryllium has excellent thermal characteristics, is nonmagnetic and is transparent to X-rays. As a result of its transparency beryllium is used widely in X-ray lithography for reproduction of micro-miniature integrated circuits and is used almost exclusively in all X-ray generators. Beryllium is also widely used in reactors, and other nuclear applications, as a reflector or moderator because it has a low thermal neutron absorption cross section.
Rare earth elements and rare metals, including beryllium and beryllium alloys, are facing increasing demand pressures driven primarily by global industrial growth as well as emerging new opportunities for beryllium use. The price of pure beryllium is generally in the range of $350 to $500 per kg.

Beryllium has a wide range of applications across a host of important industries that make it a highly valuable resource. It, or one it's many alloys, is an integral metal component of many things we take for granted in our daily lives. Without beryllium, and other rare earth metals, we would have a world without cell phones, iPods, digital and analog modems, broadband cable tools, nuclear reactors, anti-lock brakes, electric windows or door locks for example.
