What Are the Uses of Molybdenum Rods?

As the name suggests, molybdenum rod is a rod-shaped product made of molybdenum metal. Molybdenum rod has high melting point, good thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion performance. It can resist oxidation and has high strength at high temperatures. Molybdenum rod can be used to manufacture electronic vacuum devices, electro-optical source parts, high temperature heating elements, high temperature structural parts, electrodes, etc.

Methods for removing oxide on the surface of molybdenum rods

  • Molybdenum products have the characteristics of easy oxidation. When removing heavy oxide, use strong acid (fluoric acid, nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, etc.), please be careful during operation.

  • For light oxide, use a cleaning agent with added abrasive, wipe with a soft cloth or sponge, and then rinse with warm water.

  • The cleaned molybdenum products will lose their metal luster, please be cautious.

Main uses of molybdenum rods

Molybdenum rods are important in high temperature resistant products and have been widely used in the steel industry due to their strong characteristics.

Molybdenum rod is mainly used in the steel industry, most of which are directly used for steelmaking or casting after industrial molybdenum oxide blocks are pressed, and a small part is melted into molybdenum iron after being rolled into molybdenum foil. The molybdenum content in low-alloy steel does not exceed 1%, but the consumption in this regard accounts for about 50% of the total molybdenum consumption. Adding molybdenum to stainless steel can improve its corrosion resistance. Adding molybdenum to cast iron can improve its strength and wear resistance. Nickel-based superalloys containing 18% molybdenum have the characteristics of high melting point, low density, and low coefficient of thermal expansion, and can be used in the manufacture of various high-temperature components for aviation and aerospace. Metallic molybdenum is widely used in electronic devices such as electron tubes, transistors, and rectifiers. Molybdate and molybdenic acid are excellent catalysts in the chemical and petroleum industries. Used in the aerospace and mechanical industries. Molybdenum is one of the essential trace elements for plants and is used as a trace element fertilizer in agriculture.

Specific applications of molybdenum rods

  • Used to make electronic vacuum devices and electro-optical source parts;

  • Suitable for processing ion injection parts;

  • Used as high-temperature heating elements and high-temperature structural parts;
