Molybdenum Properties

Molybdenum can withstand extreme temperatures and keep its strength and stiffness at high temperatures. The melting point of Molybdenum is 2623C.

The ability of molybdenum to withstand extreme temperatures without significantly expanding or softening makes it useful in applications that involve intense heat, including the manufacture of aircraft parts, electrical contacts, industrial motors, and filaments. Molybdenum is also used in alloys for its high corrosion resistance and weld ability.
