Molybdenum Fasteners, made of Molybdenum, are a popular choice in many applications due to their excellent heat resistance, high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion rate – whilst offering good levels of corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity.
This silvery-white metal is a by-product of copper and tungsten mining, often used for the creation of screws, bolts, nuts and washers. Components manufactured from pure Molybdenum contain at least 99.95% purity and feature an extremely high melting point of 2620°C – one of the highest of all pure elements.
Its strength levels are maintained at increased temperatures – a great choice for high strength and high temperature applications, or those without the presence of oxygen e.g. sputtering equipment and vacuum furnaces. Weak oxidation of Molybdenum starts at 300°C, with increased oxidation taking place at temperatures above 600°C.
Molybdenum is often used in alloy compositions to add or enhance specific properties e.g. TZM (Titanium-Zirconium-Molybdenum) – in this case offering higher tensile strength and creep strength compared to commercially pure Molybdenum.
