Among the non-ferrous metals sold by Teknosteel Srl we sell molybdenum, which in pure form is silvery white. It is a transition metal and very hard, as well as tantalum, and among the other elements is characterized by one of the highest melting points.
In small quantities it has a hardening effect on steel. The largest percentage of molybdenum is used in high hardness metal alloys and steels resistant at high temperatures.
Other applications of molybdenum:
• In the petrochemical industry is used as catalyst for the removal of sulfur from petroleum.
• The pigments of molybdenum are used in paints.
• The use of molybdenum is finally in the production of aircraft parts, filaments and dentures.
