By using suitable alloys and optimized production processes, we are able to improve the properties of molybdenum. To achieve a particularly high level of ductility and creep resistance, we dope pure molybdenum with small quantities of La2O3. The stabilized microstructure and modified recrystallization behavior prevent the premature embrittlement and fracture of our furnace components.
What makes ML better than pure molybdenum?
- Higher recrystallization temperature
- Elongated grain structure for improved ductility
- Improved resistance to oxidation
- Higher creep resistance
