Molybdenum Facts and Uses

Molybdenum is a naturally occurring element discovered by Swedish scientist Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1778. This scientist is also the discoverer of oxygen in the air. Molybdenum is one of the elements with the highest melting point, but its density is only 25% of iron. In addition, molybdenum also has the lowest coefficient of thermal

What Are The Characteristics of Molybdenum-Copper Alloy?

Molybdenum-copper alloy is used to substitute copper and tungsten-copper in some applications. Usually, Mo/Cu alloy can be made by using high-quality molybdenum powder and oxygen-free copper powder by isostatic pressing method (high-temperature sintering-permeating copper). Since molybdenum-copper alloy is a pseudo-alloy that are pressed from two mutually incompatible metal powders, it has the characteristics of both

Refractory Molybdenum for 3D Printing Applications

3D printing is increasingly used in the manufacture of various end-use products, and it can also help researchers achieve the ultimate goal. Refractory Molybdenum plays an important role in the process of 3D printing. What is 3D printing? 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is a process of creating a three dimensional solid objects under computer control.

TZM: Titanium Zirconium Molybdenum Alloy

Introduction The refractory metal Molybdenum has several alloys. Molybdenum Alloy refers to those alloys made of molybdenum and other metal elements consisting of non-ferrous alloys, the main alloy elements are nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), titanium (Ti), zirconium (Zr), hafnium (Hf), tungsten (W) and rare earth elements. The added alloy elements not only comes from the

Industrial Applications of Refractory Metal Molybdenum

Definition: Molybdenum is a kind of silver-white metal, belonging to the refractory metal category. It is hard and tough, and is free from the erosion of the air at room temperature. It doesn’t have chemical reaction with hydrochloric acid or hydrofluoric acid. Discovery: Molybdenum was first discovered in 1782 When Swedish scientist Elm linseed oil

Molybdenum Disulfide Grease VS Graphite Grease

Although both molybdenum disulfide grease and graphite grease are inclined to black grease in appearance, it is necessary to analyze the difference between these two grease products from their physical properties rather than judging from their appearance alone. Molybdenum disulfide and graphite are used as high-temperature solid additives, but they are different. Molybdenum disulfide grease

Super Performances of Molybdenum Alloys

In terms of global consumption structure, molybdenum is indeed an ally of iron. The demand for molybdenum in western developed countries is 80% from steel, including 30% from stainless steel, 30% from low-alloy steel, 10% from drilling and cutting tools, and 10% from cast steel. Another 20% is spent on molybdenum chemicals, molybdenum-based lubricants, and

Applications of Advanced Superalloy in Aerospace Industry

Nowadays, the amount of superalloy material in the world advanced engine development has accounted for 40%~60% of the total engine, and it is known as the cornerstone of the advanced engine. The aero engine is one of the most difficult parts in the aviation industry. As the aero-engine of the aircraft power plant, it is

How Does Molybdenum Work in the Emerging Field?

Molybdenum is a kind of rare metal, also,it is one of the important strategic non-renewable resources and the basic material of development of high and new technology, national modernization and the construction of modern defense. With the continuous development of science and technology, molybdenum is widely used in steel industry, non-ferrous metal industry, nuclear industry,

What You Should Know About Molybdenum Electrodes

What Are Molybdenum Electrodes? Molybdenum electrodes are formed by balanced pressing, forging to various of types after sintering with medium frequency furnace and then turning, rolling, planning and milling. It is used as electro-heat equipment of the glass fiber kiln. The main component of the molybdenum electrode is molybdenum and prepared by powder metallurgy. The
