Metal Tidbits – Molybdenum
Molybdenum is generally alloying element with steel in order to make that steel stronger. In fact, when molybdenum is added to even small steel concentrations, the result is an ultra-high-strength steel that will maintain structural stability when placed under pressures reaching as high as 300,000 lbs/sq. in. Theses massive levels of strength do not deteriorate in high temperatures, making steel molybdenum alloys viable materials for missile and aircraft parts.
Nickel molybdenum alloys are generally used for their resistance to corrosion and deformation caused by certain chemicals. These alloys, therefore, are often used in the chemical industry. Molybdenum in its pure form is also a crucial element for plant nutrition, so you will find it being used in a wide range of fertilizers.
Whether you are interested in studying the material properties and applications of molybdenum alloys or you are interested in ordering molybdenum alloys, All Metals & Forge can help you. They are an AS9100- and ISO9001:2000-certified company that maintains one of the most comprehensive inventories of metals and alloys on the market. You can find a variety of molybdenum alloys in different pre-made shapes, or you can use their forging services to create custom designs.
Along with their stock of molybdenum alloys, All Metals & Forge has also created an online database that contains in depth data on the materials. The database also has information on other alloys and on metallurgy in general. If you have questions about products, services, or information on the database, you can contact them at 973-276-5000 or email@example.com.
All Metals & Forge carries a huge selection of high quality, hard-to-find steel alloys for companies in the aerospace, defense, chemical, and metalworking industries. Molybdenum steel is one such alloy, valued for its overall strength and the ease with which it can be welded. (The only alloy stronger than molybdenum is titanium, but titanium is considerably more expensive.) All Metals & Forge carries molybdenum steel in pre-cut shapes as well as starting stock (for in-house forging).
All Metals & Forge has two basic divisions: the forging company and the steel service center. At the steel service center, clients can purchase pre-made molybdenum steel or other hard-to-find alloys in rods, poles, or sheets, or in accordance with government or private sector specifications. All Metals & Forge’s website includes a comprehensive product listing that includes all of the pre-made alloys they carry in a variety of shapes and sizes.
The forging division of All Metals & Forge will custom forge any of the hundreds of specialty steel alloys in stock. Clients can order molybdenum steel for instance, in rings, cylinders, tubing, and pipe. They can also place orders for heat treating, cold and hot forming, cutting, and machining. All Metals & Forge offers the highest quality products, and has earned ISO9001:2000 and AS9100 certification.
In addition to offering a detailed look at all their available products and services, All Metals & Forge’s website is a great source of metallurgical information. Clients can visit the Information Resources section of the site and read up on hundreds of metallurgical terms in the SteelLog Dictionary.
