WE PRODUCE THE FOLLOWING METALS:
- Potassium doped Molybdenum (Mo-K or Moly HCT) High Creep Resistance
- Molybdenum (Mo) High melting point, hot strength, and creep resistance
- Molybdenum-lanthana alloy (Mo-La) Often used in high heat applications due to its stability and creep resistance at temperatures above 1500ºC
- Molybdenum-tantalum Alloy (Mo-Ta)
- Molybdenum-Tungsten Alloy (Mo-W or MB is an alloyed product of molybdenum and tungsten – available in various compositions)
- TZM Molybdenum Alloy (Titanium Zirconium Molybdenum) – TZM is often leveraged due to its high recrystallization temperature
- Tungsten (W) the highest melting point of all metals, high density, low coefficient of thermal expansion
- Tungsten-lanthana alloy (W-La)
- Potassium doped Tungsten (W-K)
- Tungsten Heavy Alloy (WHA)
