Molybdenum metal is a silvery white, very hard transition metal, but is softer and more ductile than tungsten. Its main characteristics are durability, strength, and resistance to corrosion and high temperatures. Molybdenum is a metal used as a raw material in order to obtain alloys, among which more resistant steel stands out. Approximately two-thirds of this metal is used for this purpose, also known as inox, with contents up to 6%.
Advanced Refractory Metals is a leading supplier of molybdenum products. We offer low pricing and great lead times on all our materials, and we’re capable of supplying custom materials per any specs/drawings you provide us with.
Molybdenum mining and processing technology have been improving since 1916, when Climax molybdenum was first mined near Leadville, Colo. At present, the main molybdenum mines in the world are distributed in the countries near the American continental divide, such as Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, Chile and China, and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent […]
Molybdenum. As shown in Table 2, the melting temperature of molybdenum is 695 degrees below that of tantalum. Because of its high melting point and relative abundance in the United States, it was the first of the refractory metals considered in this country for high-temperature structural applications. The primary use of molybdenum had been as […]
Tungsten, tantalum, molybdenum, columbium, vanadium, and chromium may be classed as relatively abundant refractory metals; that is, Free World reserves of contained metal are over 100,000 tons for each metal. The first four show promise in a considerably higher temperature range than the last two, and sometimes the term “refractory metals” is used narrowly to […]
Molybdenum, whose chemical symbol is Mo, was first recognized as an element in 1778. Until at time, the mineral molybdenite—the most important source of molybdenum—was believed be a lead mineral because of its metallic gray color, greasy feel, and softness. In the late 19th century, French metallurgists discovered that molybdenum, when alloyed with steel in […]
High tech metals are called refractory metals in scientific terms, with a high melting point of 3500 degrees C. Tungsten, molybdenum, tantalum and niobium are refractory metals. The characteristics of these materials are not only high melting point, but also difficult to mine and process. Special process beyond traditional metallurgical method is required.

With the continuous development of molybdenum industry, molybdenum raw material consumption is more and more big, the recoverable resources are becoming less and less, in order to protect the environment and improve the utilization rate of molybdenum resources, since the beginning of the last century, the developed countries began to focus on renewable resources, especially […]
