Whenever materials have to meet special challenges, we add titanium and zirconium to strengthen the microstructure of pure molybdenum. Mo-Ti solid solution and Ti-Zr carbides ensure that optimum strengths are achieved at temperatures up to 1 400 °C (2552 °F)
What can TZM do better than pure molybdenum?
- Better creep resistance
- Higher recrystallization temperature
- Greater thermal stability
