Molybdenum Properties

molybdenum mechanical physical properties specifications chemistryEd Fagan Inc. is a leading global supplier of Molybdenum.  Molybdenum offers a high melting point and low vapor pressure.  Due to its high melting point it offers a very low creep rate at typical furnace temperatures. Thermal expansion characteristics of Molybdenum is approximately one-third of stainless steels.

The tables below contain the physical, mechanical, chemistry and specifications for Molybdenum.  Please contact the sales team at Ed Fagan Inc. if you have any questions or need additional information.
