Category: Molybdenum

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%.
