Molybdenum steel

Molybdenum steel is a high-strength alloy used across a variety of industries. Steel alloys made with molybdenum are not only stronger and harder, they also are highly resistant to heat and corrosion. Electronics, heavy machine parts, tools and aircraft parts are

    Molybdenum in carbon steel - NiobelCon

    Molybdenum in carbon steel. Molybdenum, often nicknamed as “Moly”, has many important metallurgical effects in HSLA and alloy steels: Moly is a potent hardenability agent and, thus, a standard constituent in heat-treatable steels. It also retards softening at elevated temperatures and is therefore used in boiler and pressure vessel steels. In low-carbon HSLA steel Moly promotes the formation of acicular ferritic

    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
