Molybdenum (MO) is a metallic element utilized in strengthening and hardening alloy steel while producing components resistant to molten glass and heat sinks. It is a silvery-white lightweight material that provides numerous benefits, such as density, radiation protection, durability, resilience, electrical conductivity, and reliability. It is also applied in rotating X-ray anodes, which are used in glass melting furnace electrodes, clinical diagnostics, and sprayed coatings of automotive piston rings and machine components. As a result, MO finds extensive applications across the defense, oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, building and construction, and aerospace industries.
