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
Some products that use molybdenum are:
Glass melting electrodes
Molybdenum plates, foils, rods and wires
Tungsten and molybdenum anodes
Molybdenum copper alloys
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
