Stainless steels and superalloys containing molybdenum are used in the process industries, oil and gas extraction, power generation and other applications. Their superior corrosion resistance and durability in harsh, corrosive environments increases service life and reduces maintenance - and they are 100 per cent recyclable.
Molybdenum bearing stainless steels are also used in architecture, building and construction for their resistance to corrosion in coastal and polluted environments. Common uses are in building facades, canopies and many kinds of street furniture.
The longevity and recyclability of these stainless steels and superalloys make an important contribution to reducing lifecycle costs both during use and at their end-of-life.
