Molybdenum Metal


Molybdenum (often referred to as 'Moly') is valued as an alloying agent in structural and stainless steels because of its strength, corrosion resistance and ability to hold shape and operate at high temperatures.

Molybdenum has a high density and melting point, and is resistant to heat and wear. At 2,623 °C (4,753 °F), it has one of the highest melting points of all metal elements, while its coefficient of thermal expansion is one of the lowest of all engineering materials. Moly also has a low toxicity.

Molybdenum is used as an additive in structural steels because of its corrosion resistance, strength and durability. Being particularly useful in protecting metals against chloridic corrosion, such steels are used in a wide range of marine environment applications (e.g. offshore oil rigs), as well as oil and gas pipelines.

Stainless steels account for another 25% of Molybdenum demand, which value the metal's ability to strengthen and inhibit corrosion. High-speed steels and super alloys use Moly to strengthen, increase hardness and resistance to wear and deformation at high temperatures.
