Molybdenum - Globe Metal Recycling

Globe Metal continues to play an active role in molybdenum recycling as the volumes for both buyers and sellers increasing in the global trade of molybdenum scrap metal. Molybdenum (moly) has a unique combination of properties, including a high melting point, high thermal and electrical conductivity, and low thermal expansion. These outstanding features make moly a highly versatile engineering material. Molybdenum alloys in steel, and widely added to many other metals. Molybdenum-based metals provide exceptional resistance to corrosion and abrasion and are durable even in harsh corrosive environments. Thus, moly is a top choice in the fields of building and construction, oil and gas production, and aerospace and marine production.

Purity is an Important Factor in Molybdenum Recycling

The first application of molybdenum is as an alloying agent. It’s a useful alternative to tungsten in many alloys, as it provides the thermal resistance that tungsten does, but at stable prices compared to tungsten.

Molybdenum’s properties are useful in an extensive range of alloys:

  • Stainless steels
  • Material coatings
  • Electrodes
  • Moulds
  • Nickel-based alloys
  • Low-alloy steels
  • Superalloys

Molybdenum is found alloyed in with many components; the amounts of moly can range from 5% to 99.99% purity. Purity, form  and contamination play a critical factor in determining the value of moly. High purity moly alloys can be found in sputtering targets, as they can contain up to 99.95% pure moly. With the wide ranges of moly purity contained in metal materials, we recognize that it can take a lot of human resources to know you’re getting fair market value for your material. That’s why it’s essential to rely on an experienced and knowledgeable industrial metal recycler to handle your moly materials.  At Globe Metal, we have the know-how to extract as much metal as possible and maximize the value of spent materials. So no matter if you’re looking to sell Ni-Mo Sludge, Pure turnings, residues, Moly-Oxides or high purity Molybdenum sputtering targets, you can be assured that you’ll get top value and service through Globe Metal.
