What does Molybdenum Sheet mean?
Molybdenum as a material is very rigid, strong, able to withstand high temperatures and shows extremely good corrosion resistance properties.
Molybdenum sheets are metal sheets prepared from molybdenum oxide, which have a smooth, shiny grey color similar to aluminum sheets in appearance.They are used forfabricating sintering boats, high temperature furnace heating elements, heat shields and other
industrial applications.

Some products that use molybdenum are:

Glass melting electrodes
Molybdenum plates, foils, rods and wires
Evaporation boats
Tungsten and molybdenum anodes
Molybdenum copper alloys
Seamless tubes
Molybdenum crucibles

Molybdenum is gray-metallic and has the third highest melting point of any element next totungsten and tantalum. It is found in various oxidation states in minerals but does not occur naturally as a free metal. Molybdenum allows readily form hard and stable carbides. For this reason, Molybdenum is frequently used for making steel alloys, high strength alloys, and superalloys. Molybdenum compounds usually have a low solubility in water. Industrially, they are used in high-pressure and high-temperature applications such as pigments and catalysts.Due to these and other unique properties, molybdenum sheet is highly suitable for numerous applications in the chemical and electronics industries.

GETWICK provides a wide range of molybdenum and molybdenum alloy products using two primary consolidation methods; vacuum arc-casting and powder metallurgy. The availability of products from both of these established processes gives users many options in selecting a material to satisfy their specific application
