Molybdenum rod can be manufactured into wire, electrode, steel-making additives, electric vacuum parts, gas pipes, lead-wire, pole, side bars, daily-use glass, optical glass, insulation material and glass fiber. Small crucibles and tubes are machined from Molybdenum rods.
Surface Finish for Molybdenum rod
Black –Surface covered with processing lubricants and oxides. This surface treatment is quite rough, and the rods will be with larger tolerance
Cleaned – Surface is chemically cleaned to remove all lubricants and oxides.
Ground – Surface is center less ground to remove all coating and to achieve precise diameter control.
Moly rod is manufactured as random length pieces or cut to customized lengths in diameters ranging from 0.16 inches to 6.00 inches.
Specification for Moly rods:
|Standard||ASTM B387, Type 361 (PM pure molybdenum)/364 (TZM Alloy)|
|Size||0.16”~6.0” diameter x L|
|Surface||Grinding, Finish turning, Black Oxide, Chemically cleaned|
Molybdenum with larger diameter will be named as ingot. Other Moly parts machined from rods can be manufactured per drawings, we also provide TZM alloy rod and Mo-La alloy rod.
Packing of Moly rods
Regularly, our molybdenum rods (TZM alloy, Mo-La rod) are packed in wooden crate, cartons are also used for small rods and cylinders.
