Chemical molybdenum products

Chemical molybdenum products available on the market include:

  • Lubricant grade molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), produced by drying and de-oiling unroasted high purity molybdenite concentrate
  • Sublimed pure molybdic oxide, produced by the sublimation of roasted molybdenite concentrate

The following chemical products are produced by upgrading roasted molybdenite concentrate using wet chemical processes:

  • Ammonium heptamolybdate
  • Ammonium octamolybdate
  • Ammonium dimolybdate
  • Calcined pure molybdic oxide
  • Sodium molybdate

Because of their unique characteristics, molybdenum chemicals find extensive use in:

  • Desulfurization catalysts
  • Colorful pigments
  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • Fertilizer micronutrients
  • Flame and smoke suppressants
  • Lubricants for extreme pressure and temperature operating conditions
