Molybdenum is a genuine all-rounder. For example, we use this material to produce ribbons and wires for the lighting industry, semiconductor base plates for power electronics, glass melting electrodes, hot zones for high-temperature furnaces and sputtering targets for coating solar cells and flat screens.
The industrial applications for our molybdenum are as varied as its properties.
High power densities and the flow of electricity through power diodes and transistors generate heat. Molybdenum has high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion.Thanks to its good thermal conductivity and thermal expansion properties that are adapted to the relevant semiconductor material, molybdenum and its alloys are the perfect substrate for power electronics. When used as a base plate, molybdenum reliably dissipates heat.
Our molybdenum is exceptionally pure, withstands very high temperatures and is nevertheless still easy to machine. Molybdenum has high purity and excellent creep resistance. Thanks to their exceptional purity, these have proved their worth as optimized melting and solidification vessels. For example, we can produce crucibles for all the conventionally employed processes in the field of sapphire growth.
Our stirrers homogenize all types of glass melt. To do this, they must withstand extreme temperatures and aggressive glass melts. Molybdenum has high dimensional stability and excellent corrosion resistance. Molybdenum makes it possible. With its excellent dimensional stability and corrosion resistance against metal and glass melts, our material ensures optimum stirring coupled with long product service lives.
With high performance even at the highest temperatures, molybdenum is widely used in our everyday life.
Thanks to these special properties, molybdenum is indispensable in many key industries:
For highly pure types of glass, the glass industry prefers glass melting electrodes made of molybdenum.
Due to molybdenum's low degree of thermal expansion, it is frequently used in the electronics industry for semiconductors and for thermal heat sinks.
Molybdenum crucibles are very well suited for growing crystals in LED production.
Thin film transistors for photovoltaic systems require ultrathin molybdenum coating as a conductive metal layer.
In high-temperature furnaces, molybdenum furnace linings provide excellent protection from heat radiation.
With its unique mechanical and chemical properties, molybdenum is an outstanding material that can meet the most exacting requirements. Because molybdenum possesses a very high melting point, a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a high level of thermal conductivity, it is used in many different industries.
