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%.

How Do We Use Molybdenum?

0 Comment

How Do We Use Molybdenum? Molybdenum, whose chemical symbol is Mo, was first recognized as an element in 1778. Until that time, the mineral molybdenite—the most important source of molybdenum—was believed to be a lead mineral because of its metallic gray color, greasy feel, and softness. In the late 19th century, French metallurgists discovered that […]
