Molybdenum and alloys

 

MOLYBDENUM

This is a soft, silvery-white metal with one of the highest melting points (2623° C / 4753° F). Molybdenum is often used in inert and vacuum environments.

MOLYBDENUM TZM

Improves resistance to high temperatures compared to pure Molybdenum although, just like Molybdenum, it oxidises rapidly in oxidising atmosphere from 500°C upwards.

MOLYBDENUM LANTHANUM

Lanthanum is used with molybdenum for its superconductor properties.

MOLYBDENUM TUNGSTEN

Tungsten improves the high-temperature properties and corrosion resistance of molybdenum. It can be delivered in different composition percentages (contact us for more details). Used primarily for mixing tools in the glass industry and in electronics.

MOLYBDENUM ZIRCONIUM

Zirconium oxide added to Molybdenum offers greater corrosion resistance, greater stability at high temperatures and better resistance to fluxing than pure molybdenum.

MOLYBDENUM TANTALUM

Adding Tantalum to Molybdenum substantially improves corrosion resistance.

MOLYBDENUM RHENIUM

Rhenium makes molybdenum more malleable even at temperatures below room temperature. Molybdenum-rhenium (MoRe) is primarily used for thermocouple cables, and when stretching is required (for example, thin wire, etc.).
