What is Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder used for?

Brazil, the world's largest coffee bean producer, recently announced that it is facing the worst drought in 91 years, affecting local hydropower generation and agricultural MoSi2 Powder keeps going up.

Introduction to Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder
Under different conditions, silicon and molybdenum can form several different compounds, including trimolybdenum silicide (Mo3Si), pentamolybdenum trisilicide (Mo5Si3), and molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2), of which the most important is molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2). 
Molybdenum disilicide is an inorganic compound, the chemical formula is MoSi2, gray metal solid.
Molybdenum silicide has a high melting point, low density, good thermal conductivity, good electrical conductivity and excellent high-temperature oxidation resistance, high elastic modulus, low thermal expansion coefficient, high strength, and good resistance to chemical corrosion and thermal shock resistance. MoSi2 is widely used in high-temperature heating element component materials and high-temperature oxidation resistance coating materials, is also the most development potential for high-temperature structural materials and wear-resistant materials.

Applications of Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder
Molybdenum disilicide is used in the fields of high-temperature oxidation-resistant coating materials, electric heating elements, integrated electrode films, structural materials, reinforcement of composite materials, wear-resistant materials, bonding materials of structural ceramics,etc. Specifically, it can be used in:
1. Energy chemical industry: electric heating elements, high-temperature heat exchangers of atomic reactor device, gas burner, high-temperature thermocouple, and its protective tube, crucibles of melting utensils (used for melting sodium, lithium, lead, bismuth, tin, and other metals). 
2. Microelectronics industry: MoSi2 and other refractory metal silicides Ti5Si3, WSi2, and TaSi2 are important candidate materials for lsi gate and interconnect thin films. 
3. Aerospace industry: used as high-temperature oxidation-resistant coating materials. Especially as turbine engine components such as blades, impellers, burners, nozzles, and seals.
4. Automotive industry: automotive turbocharger rotor, valve body, spark plug, and engine parts.
 

What is the MoSi2 Heating Element?
Molybdenum disilicide heating element is a kind of high-density material composed of molybdenum disilicide and silicon dioxide self-forming glaze. The operating temperature can reach 1800. These components have a long service life.

Commodities such as crude oil, wheat, cotton, and nickel have rallied since Russia's "special military operations" began in late February. On the last trading day of this quarter, commodities were on track for their biggest gain since 1990. For this reason, it is expected that the price of the MoSi2 Powder will continue to increase.
