Industrial Demands of Molybdenum and Molybdenum Alloys
Molybdenum and molybdenum alloys not only have high-temperature strength, good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion coefficient but also have the advantage of easier processing than tungsten.
Alloy elements of steel
As an ally of steel, molybdenum,is used as an alloying element to reduce brittle changes that often occur in alloy steel during heat treatment. The function of molybdenum in stainless steel is to improve corrosion resistance, high-temperature strength, and weldability, and it can be seen that molybdenum plays an extraordinary role in the steel industry.
Molybdenum has very low steam under the temperature and pressure of the vacuum furnace so the molybdenum parts have the least pollution to the workpiece or working material in the furnace, and its evaporation loss certainly does not limit the service life of high-temperature molybdenum parts such as heating elements and heat shield seals. In the manufacture of glass products, the high temperature strength of molybdenum makes it the most ideal electrode and processing equipment during rapid heating.
