Molybdenum Crucible Applications

With a high corrosion resistance to most acids and many molten materials such as glass or metals, molybdenum crucibles are ideal for the metallurgy, mechanism, and rare earth smelting industries. They can withstand vacuum thermal evaporation, nuclear fuel sintering, and capacitor sintering. Molybdenum Mo crucibles are also seeing an increased use in the growing high technology industry and in crystalloid materials.

Molybdenum Crucible Packaging

Our high performance molybdenum Mo crucibles are wrapped in foam and packaged in plywood cases to ensure safe storage and transportation.
