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

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,

An Overview of Five Molybdenum-containing Materials

In modern industry, about 22 percent of newly produced molybdenum is used to make molybdenum-containing stainless steel; structural steel, tool steel, high-speed steel, and cast iron accounted for about 57%; the remaining 21% is used for molybdenum compounds such as lubricant grade molybdenum disulfide, molybdenum metal, etc. Molybdenum is commonly used in five kinds of

An Overview of the Molybdenum alloy

Molybdenum alloy is a nonferrous alloy composed of molybdenum matrix and other elements, which are nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), titanium (Ti), zirconium (Zr), hafnium (Hf), tungsten (W) and rare earth elements. The addition of alloying elements can not only strengthen molybdenum alloy in solid solution and maintain its low-temperature plasticity but also form a stable

Why Does the World’s Sustainable Development Depend On Molybdenum?

Molybdenum (Mo) is often added to other materials in a very small amount, but can greatly improve the properties of materials. The phrase “Less is more” illustrates how molybdenum can contribute to sustainable development in a variety of ways, as well as creating value for modern society, the environment, and the economy in the role

Molybdenum Pigment: Give You a Healthy and Comfortable Environment

There are red cars, white railings, colorful billboard, etc. Things in the world have a rainbow of colors and make a person cannot help to sigh the world colorful. Thanks to the existence of pigments, we can say goodbye to black and white ashes. Molybdenum has a rich chemistry performance and many of its salts
