Molybdenum is a silvery-white, hard, transition metal, which has the eighth-highest melting point of any element. Molybdenum burns only at temperatures above 600 ° C (1, 112 ° F). It has the lowest heating expansion of any commercially used metal and it is widely used in alloys, electrodes and catalysts.

TZM alloy (High Temperature Alloy, Mo99-Ti0.5-Zr0.08-C0.02)
TZM offers twice the strength of pure molybdenum at temperatures over 1300'C. The recrystallization temperature of TZM is approximately 250'C higher than molybdenum and it offers better weldability adequate ductility. The material is manufactured either by P/M or arc-cast processes. TZM is well suited to hot work applications because of its combination of high hot hardness, high thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion to hot work steels.
