Pure molybdenum, TZM or MoLa Alloy?

Molybdenum - Element information, properties

SAM prepares our molybdenum to perform perfectly in every application. We can determine the following properties through the addition of various alloys:

  • Physical properties (e.g. melting point, vapor pressure, density, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, heat capacity)
  • Mechanical properties (e.g. strength, fracture behavior, creep resistance, ductility)
  • Chemical properties (corrosion resistance, etchability)
  • Machinability (e.g. cutting processes, formability, weldability)
  • Recrystallization behavior (recrystallization temperature, embrittlement, aging effects)

Molybdenum & Molybdenum Alloys

And there's more: By using our own customized manufacturing processes, we can modulate various other properties of molybdenum across a wide range of values. The result: Molybdenum alloys with different ranges of properties are precisely engineered to meet the requirements of each individual application.
