Molybdenum Parts and Fittings

Molybdenum – “Mo”

Molybdenum rod, bar, furnace, plate, sheet

Molybdenum is a hard yet ductile metal element, with a melting point over 2500°C. As a result of these properties, it lends itself very well to the metal fabrication process – and can be used to create a wide range of molybdenum parts and fittings. These parts and fittings are used across a broad spectrum of industries and are available to buy here, at Special Metals.

Within our metal parts department, we currently manufacture and supply:

  • Molybdenum sheets – thin, typically rectangular, sheets of molybdenum
  • Molybdenum plates – these are very similar to molybdenum sheets in terms of their shape. However, they’re usually much thicker and are most commonly used as blanks
  • Molybdenum rods – cylindrical pieces of molybdenum, which are often used as a base component for more sophisticated metal parts and wrought products
  • Molybdenum wire – long, extremely thin lengths of wire
  • Molybdenum bars – pieces of molybdenum that are long and cuboid in shape

Customised molybdenum parts

All of the above are stocked in standard sizes. However, as leading molybdenum suppliers, we like to go the extra mile and offer a bespoke fabrication service. Whatever shape or size you need, no matter how big or small the job, we will make your ideal molybdenum parts to order. Simply tell us what you need and we will produce a high-quality product that meets your exact specification.

What can molybdenum parts be used for?

Molybdenum parts demonstrate many useful properties and, as such, have a wide range of uses. These uses can be separated into three main categories, including:


This is molybdenum’s primary application. Thanks to its hardness and strength, electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion, it’s frequently used in steel alloys.

High-temperature applications

Capable of withstanding high temperatures, molybdenum parts are often employed for intense-heat applications – such as the manufacture of aircraft parts, industrial motors, lighting parts, filaments and more.


As part of a compound, molybdenum is regularly used as a lubricant additive and as a catalyst within the petroleum industry.
