Molybdenum is a dominant element with specific chemical and mechanical properties that can meet the most demanding requirements. Molybdenum has an extremely high melting point, high level of thermal conductivity, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion and because of this, it is used in various industries.
It is used in the production of wires and ribbons for the lighting industry, in the production of glass melting electrodes, in semiconductor base plates for the power electronics, flat screens and more.
Molybdenum (Mo) is a silvery-white shiny metal, hard but at the same time softer and more flexible than tungsten. It has an excellent resistance to corrosion, good wear and resistance to abrasion, and superior thermal and electrical properties. It is an essential element when it comes to alloys, as it enhances hardenability and persistence of tempered and destroyed steels.
Molybdenum powder has a black or dark gray color and it is often confused with graphite. It is primarily used for hardening of iron and steel even though it has other important applications for enhancing the performance in high temperature and aggressive environments as well. It is used as a raw material in an extensive range of applications such as high-temperature furnace heaters, spray coating materials, wires for electronics use, glass melting electrodes, rods and plates, nuclear power paint materials, and much more.
The role of molybdenum powder in the electronics market has been extremely important since the vacuum tubes first came out. The common electronic applications involve elements utilized to produce electrical devices, such as multilayer ceramic circuits, setter tiles for sintering ceramic substrates, and physical vapor deposition masks.
Molybdenum powder, when paired with copper, has been also used for thermal management applications. It is also an essential part of rectifiers and high-power diodes as well as in flat-panel screens.
There are various industrial applications of molybdenum powder. However, we are going to mention the 3 most important ones:
3 Most Important Uses of Powdered Molybdenum
Besides the various industrial uses and applications, molybdenumhas a very important biological role as well. Even though this element is toxic in small quantities, it is a crucial element for plants and animals. There are approximately 50 enzymes used by animals and plants that contain this element.
Our molybdenum powder has a high level of sphericity which makes it the perfect powder for coating. It is a material used in many applications as it has excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, very high density and a high melting point and these properties are crucial in most industrial processes.
