Definition - What does Molybdenum Sheet mean?
Molybdenum sheets are metal sheets prepared from molybdenum oxide, which have a smooth, shiny grey color similar to aluminum sheets in appearance. The molybdenum sheets are generally 0.005 to 0.09 inches (0.127 mm to 2.286 mm) thick. They are used for fabricating sintering boats, high temperature furnace heating elements, heat shields and other industrial applications.
Corrosionpedia explains Molybdenum Sheet
Molybdenum as a material is very rigid, strong, able to withstand high temperatures and shows extremely good corrosion resistance properties.
Molybdenum sheets are prepared in rolls of various thickness and width. The maximum width for a molybdenum sheet roll is 24 inches (60.96 cm) as per the industry standards. The sheet's thickness ranges from 0.005 to 0.09 inches (0.127 mm to 2.286 mm). The length of a molybdenum sheet roll depends on the intended purpose.
Some products that use molybdenum are:
- Glass melting electrodes
- Molybdenum plates, foils, rods and wires
- Evaporation boats
- Tungsten and molybdenum anodes
- Molybdenum copper alloys
- Seamless tubes
- Molybdenum crucibles
