Ferro Molybdenum




Ferro Molybdenum is an alloy which is formed by combining iron and molybdenum. Ferro Molybdenum is a hardening agent and is found in many alloy steels that are heat-treatable. Ferro Molybdenum prevents corrosion in stainless steels, and when mixed with iron, it also strengthens and hardens into austenite. Ferro Molybdenum comes in many grades, although predominantly it is produced in just two grades (one for US and one for EU) where the content of pure molybdenum is between 60% and 75%.

Size : 10-100mm or as required

Melting Point : 1900oC

Properties of Ferro Molybdenum
Ferro Molybdenum is an additive to the production process of amorphous metals and will impart several desirable properties into the new alloy. One of the primary benefits of adding Ferro Molybdenum to an alloy is its hardening properties that makes steel extremely strong and at the same time weld able, as Molybdenum is one of the top 5 melting-point metals. Additionally, the adding of Ferro Molybdenum to an alloy can increase corrosion resistance. Properties of Ferro Molybdenum make it suitable for a variety of protective films over other metals.
