Molybdenum is one of the five main refractory metals (metals with high resistance to heat and to wear). Other refractory metals are tungsten, tantalum, niobium and rhenium.

The melting point of molybdenum is 2623ºC, which is higher than that of steel, at 1000ºC. It is therefore used in a variety of alloys to improve strength, particularly at high temperatures.

Approximately 75% of all molybdenum produced is used in the iron and steel industries. It is also used in the manufacture of parts for furnaces, lamps, missiles, aircraft and firearms.

Molybdenum disulphide is used as a high-temperature lubricant.

Main characteristics:
- Melting point: 2623 ºC.
- Boiling point: 4639 ºC.
- Density: 10.22 g/cm³.
- Good electrical conductivity.
- High resistance to traction at high temperatures.
- Low vapour pressure.
- Low heat expansion coefficient.
