IMOA publishes revised molybdenum metal brochure


The International Molybdenum Association, (IMOA) has published an updated version of the brochure entitled ‘Application of Molybdenum Metal and its Alloys’.

This new edition covers the production of molybdenum metal and its physical, mechanical and chemical properties and explains how they make the metal and its alloys the materials of choice in a wide range of applications.

Dr Nicole Kinsman, IMOA Technical Director said, “This brochure has proved one of our most popular website downloads over the years. It has been completely revised to include the latest information on the use of moly metal in applications and technologies including lighting, electrical and electronic devices, and medical equipment.

“High-temperature processing applications such as hot working, heat treating and glass melting are also covered in the brochure as is thermal spray coating. The comprehensive publication concludes with a detailed section on machining and fabricating molybdenum metal and alloys,” Nicole added.

The brochure is available for download in both English and Chinese through IMOA's media centre.

General information for media

IMOA is a non profit trade association, representing the majority of the molybdenum industry worldwide. It works to raise awareness about the unique properties of molybdenum, its beneficial effects on materials performance, its safety in use and its contribution to sustainable development.

Molybdenum is added to alloy steels to improve strength, toughness, hardenability and weldability for numerous applications in the automotive, shipbuilding, construction, mining, chemical, oil & gas and energy generation industries. In stainless steels and superalloys, it improves corrosion resistance and high-temperature performance and finds uses in many industrial applications. It is also used in a variety of products from catalysts and lubricants to pigments and paint.

IMOA has a strict antitrust compliance policy which delegates of all meetings are required to observe. All such meetings are observed by legal counsel.
