Molybdenum Alloy Plate And Sheet (TZM, MoCu)
Titanium Zirconium Molybdenum (TZM)
TZM plate and sheet has a high melting point, good thermal conductivity, and low coefficient of thermal expansion. In fact, these characteristics are comparable to pure molybdenum flat products. Moreover, the mechanical properties of TZM plate and sheet are favorable to pure molybdenum materials, both at room temperature and at temperatures up to 1,700 oC. Its two most promising properties are its high-temperature tensile strength and creep resistance. TZM plate and sheet attains these advantages from solid solution strengthening and dispersion strengthening. During the process of vacuum sintering, the elements Zr, Ti, and C are heated to diffuse into the Mo matrix as per their solubilities and consequently enhance the microstructure of the base molybdenum. At the same time, the carbide titanium and carbide zirconium ( TiC and ZrC ) are also created as secondary phase particles that fill in the grain boundaries of TZM alloy.

Molybdenum Copper Plate And Sheet
Molybdenum copper alloy is mainly used to produce vacuums and high temperature contactors, as well as electric conductive and cooling elements. Molybdenum copper alloy with 30% of copper perfectly combines the high thermal conductivity of copper and the low thermal expansion of molybdenum together. In normal and medium temperature conditions, molybdenum copper alloy can maintain a better strength and a better malleability. When the temperature condition exceeds the melting temperature of copper, the copper will be liquefied and evaporated to absorb the heat. More about Mo Cu plate and sheet >>>

Molybdenum plates and sheets are the most common material chosen out of all the various molybdenum products. Many high temperature and electronic industries require molybdenum flat materials to produce furnace boats, hot zones, heat shielding, target materials etc. The reason is that molybdenum material has a variety of valuable properties, which include high strength, hardness and heat conductivity in high-temperature atmosphere. It also has a low coefficient of expansion and excellent resistance to heat and corrosion. Some rapidly developing industries such as aerospace, electronics, and thermal treatment use a large amount of molybdenum plates products, especially in large size.
Take the example of the molybdenum plate used to produce the electronic and vacuum components. An ideal material for electronic and vacuum components needs to have high strength, a homogenous structure, precise dimensions, and excellent machinability. Molybdenum plate can meet all these requirements. At the same time, it can also ensure perfect control in the range of yield strength, elongation and machining tolerance.
