  • Molydenum

    Molybdenum is a silvery-white lustrous metal with reminiscent of tin. It has a density of 10.22 g/cm³ and is very much lighter when compared to tungsten, but with high boiling point of 5,560 °C and melting point of 2,620 °C.
    It is a hard, tough and high strength material with low degree of thermal expansion, low heat resistance, and superior thermal conductivity. These properties make it the material of choice for applications that require high degree of heat protection and excellent thermal conductivity.
    ShaanXi's molybdenum products can be produced according to the requests of customers on: bars, sheets, wires, discs, crucibles, molybdenum alloy (TZM alloy ) and any other fabricated molybdenum parts.

  • Applications of Molybdenum

    Molybdenum is a valuable alloying agent in various steels, as it not only contributes to their toughness, but also improves the corrosion resistance and weldability of the steels. Approximately 80% of this metal is used in the production of various steels, such as structural steels, stainless steels, high-speed steels, tool steels and so on. The rest of 20% of Mo products basically utilized in the electronics industry for thermal heat sinks and semiconductors thanks to its low degree of thermal expansion.Molybdenum furnace linings deliver high degree of protection against heat radiation in high-temperature furnaces and molybdenum crucibles are ideal for crystal growth in the production of LEDs. In the glass industry, glass melting electrodes fabricated from molybdenum are well suited for highly pure types of glass.
