Ferro-Molybdenum

Ferro-Molybdenum prevents corrosion in stainless steels, and when mixed with iron, the Molybdenum
also strengthens and hardens into austenite. Ferro-Molybdenum is mainly produced by Alumino Thermit Process. Moly Oxide, which is the raw material is produced in Chile. Ferro-Molybdenum is produced in India, China, Iran & Europe

FERRO-MOLYBDENUM APPLICATIONS


Ferro Molybdenum is added to an alloy due to its hardening properties that makes steel extremely
strong and at the same time weldable. Ferro Molybdenum also helps in increasing the Corrosion
resistance. The largest practical applications of Ferro Molybdenum are its use in ferrous alloys, and
depending on the molybdenum content range, it is suited for machine tools and equipment, military
hardware, refinery tubing, load-bearing parts and rotary drills. Ferro-Molybdenum is also used in cars, trucks, locomotives and ships. In addition, Ferro Molybdenum is used in stainless and heat-resisting steels that are employed by synthetic fuel and chemical plants, heat exchangers, power generators, oil-refining equipment, pumps, turbine tubing, ship propellers, plastics and inside acid storage containers.
Tool steels, with a high percentage range of Ferro-Molybdenum, are used in high-speed machining parts, cold work tools, drill bits, screwdrivers, dies, chisels, heavy castings, ball and rolling mill.
