Molybdenum

In its pure form, molybdenum is a silvery-grey metal with a Mohs Hardness of 5.5. It has a melting point 2,623 °C (4,753 °F). Weak oxidation of molybdenum starts at 300 °C (572 °F).

 

About 86% of molybdenum produced is used in metallurgy, with the rest used in chemical applications. The estimated global use is structural steel 35%, Stainless Steel 25%, chemicals 14%, tool & high-speed steels 9%, Cast Iron 6%, molybdenum elemental metal 6%, and super alloy 5%.

 

We produce roasted Molybdenum compound/ concentrate from secondary materials and they are used to make Ammonium Molydbate, Sodium molybdate , MoO3 and FeMo.
