Density 10,2 Quality according to ASTM: B 365 (Rod) B 386 (Sheet, Strip)
Due to its high melting point of 2620°C Mo is an excellent material for high-temperature technology with vacuum and gas protection. Among other things this material is used in heat shields, heat conductors, pipes, evaporator and charge carriers.
It can mechanically be worked easily, but little filings and dust are easily inflammable. Under certain conditions Mo can be welded.
