Pure Molybdenum Foil Material
Elmet is a leading global provider of high-quality molybdenum foil products and the only US owned and operated producer. We offer standard foil thicknesses ranging from .001″ to .005″ (and thicker) that can be cut to size or rolled to customer specified thickness, length, surface finish as well as other material properties. As with all of our materials, our sheet begins as metal powder, is pressed into ingots, sintered, and then rolled. Our advanced Z-Mill foil process enables us to tailor the product to meet specific customer material and performance requirements to ensure optimal performance in your application.
Molybdenum Foil Products:
Elmet offers a wide range of molybdenum rolled foil products in varying thickness, length, and finishes. Material less than .005 inches thick is classified as foil. Foil is often used for heat and x-ray shielding, production of drawn parts, electronic components, metalizing sources, furnace insulation, and chemically etched parts. Molybdenum foil has the ability to be etched into fine patterns, making it useful in the semiconductor industry.
Molybdenum Sheet Surface Condition
The surface can be supplied in a shiny, matte, satin, or as-rolled condition; dependent upon thickness and width parameters.
Molybdenum Sheet Heat Treatment
Molybdenum flat products are rolled and annealed to provide the optimum condition for the desired end use (Furnace, Punch, Deep Draw).
Below is a table of common thicknesses. Please call for availability, finish, and lengths.

High purity molybdenum possesses unique properties that are suitable for use in a number of applications and industries. For example, its high melting point, 2620 °C, drives its performance in high-temperature environments. Elmet starts with the highest quality Mo powder to ensure our final product always meets our customer’s application needs. In addition, we will modify the manufacturing processes to meet even the most exacting application requirements that our customers have.

Fully Integrated Tungsten and Molybdenum Manufacturing:
When tungsten and molybdenum material characteristics and properties must be critically controlled for superior end product performance, companies rely on Elmet Technologies unmatched expertise in the field of powder metallurgy. Our advanced powder processing produces pure tungsten and molybdenum metal powders as well as specific metal alloys. By selectively influencing aspects of the metallurgical process, we can change characteristics like porosity, strength, and temperature resistance to meet our customers specific needs. At Elmet, our process is fully integrated and starts with the raw material, metal oxide, which is then purified to tungsten and molybdenum metal powder through a chemical reduction process. The powder is formed into semi-finished products through a series of advanced mixing, pressing, deformation and heating technologies. Finished products are then carefully manufactured to customer specifications utilizing our state-of-the-art machining and fabrication techniques. By controlling each step in the production process from metal powder to finished product we ensure that our products consistently deliver the performance and quality required by our customers.
