Molybdenum Hex Nuts
Elmet manufactures and stocks common sizes of high performance molybdenum threaded rod and hex nuts. Sizes range from #4 to 3/4″ in English sizes and M5 to M12 in Metric sizes of hex nuts and threaded rod.
Elmet’s Pure 99.95% Molybdenum Hex Nuts and Threaded Rod are made in the USA at our fully integrated Lewiston, Maine production facility.
- Molybdenum hex nut
- Machined from 99.95% pure molybdenum pressed, sintered and swaged material
- Made in the USA – the only remaining fully integrated US source of pure Molybdenum rod material and products
- Designed to exceed ASTM 387 specifications
- ISO 9001 and AS9100C certified manufacturing process
High purity molybdenum possess unique properties that are suitable for use in a number of applications and industries. It may be most well known for its high melting point, 2620 °C, however it is usefulness is driven by its performance in high temperature and corrosive environments:
- Load bearing capabilities at temperatures up to 2000 °C,
- Excellent thermal and electrical conductivity
- Low vapor pressure at high temperature
- Low coefficient of thermal expansion
- Resistance to corrosion
- Shielding from high energy particles
Elmet starts with the highest quality Mo powder and follows ISO 9001 and AS9100C certified manufacturing process to ensure our final product always meets our customer’s application needs. In addition, we will modify the manufacturing processes to meet specific customer application requirements.

Fully Integrated Tungsten and Molybdenum Manufacturing:
Elmet’s fully integrated manufacturing means that we control each step in the production process from metal powder to finished product. This ensures that our products consistently deliver the performance and quality required by our customers.
About our Process:
When tungsten and molybdenum material characteristics and properties must be critically controlled for superior end product performance, consumers rely on Elmet Technologies’ unmatched expertise in the field of powder metallurgy. Our advanced powder processes to produce 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.
Precision Machining, Fabrication & Assembly:
At Elmet Technologies, we pride ourselves in offering our customers sophisticated tungsten and molybdenum machining and fabrication capabilities that have been honed over decades of experience with two of the most challenging materials to machine: molybdenum and tungsten. We operate more than 70 machines dedicated to supporting your precision machining and fabrication requirements.
