Background Molybdenum disilicide is a gray metallic looking mineral. It is insoluble in acids, however soluble in nitric or hydrofluoric acids. At high temperatures, it forms a layer of silicon dioxide that protects it from further oxidation.
Heating Elements Heating elements made from molybdenum disilicide can be used for temperatures up to 1800 °C. In atmospheres with low oxygen, the maximum operating temperature is lowered because the passivation layer will break down.
