Molybdenum (Moly)

Ferro Molybdenum is an alloy which is formed by combining Iron & Molybdenum. Ferro Moly is a hardening agent & is found in many alloy steels. Molybdenum prevents corrosion in Stainless steel and when mixed with Iron, it also hardens & strengthens into austenite. The alloy is produced by heating/melting a mixture of Molybdenum Oxide & Iron. It can be produced in an Induction/Arc furnace or by aluminothermic reaction. It is added to Molten steel before casting. Ferro Molybdenum comes in many grades, but the Molybdenum content mostly varies between 60 – 75%. It is not classed as a hazardous good for transit. Almost 80% of the world’s Ferro Moly is produced in China, USA & Chile together.

Application: Used in steel melting for making alloy steel suitable for mining & refinery, military hardware, rotary drills & load bearing parts. FeMo is also used in stainless, heat-resisting steel & tool steel.

Colloidal MoS2:

Colloidal MoS2 is a stable dispersion of uniform, microscopic molybdenum disulfide particles in a highly refined petroleum oil concentrate. It is designed for use in formulating automotive and industrial lubricants.

Colloidal MoS2 significantly reduces friction and improves the extreme pressure, load carrying , and anti-wear properties of lubricants. It prevents metal-to-metal contact and surface scuffing and provides reliable lubrication in boundary conditions.

High solids content – 30%
Good thermal stability
Affinity for metal surfaces

Reduces wear
Reduces friction
Lubricates when oil films are unable to survive
Facilitates assembly of close fitting parts

Special stabilizers and an improved manufacturing process produce smaller particles and better stability with Moly impact than dispersions made with Suspension Grade Colloidal dispersion MoS2 powder. In lubricants, Colloidal MoS2 provides several times greater coverage than Dispersed Suspension Grade MoS2.

Typical Applications As an additive for or supplement to:
Engine oils – Gear oils
Greases – Penetrating oils
Hydraulic oils – Cutting oils
Industrial lubricants – Conveyor chain lubricants

Physical Properties:
Lubricating solid – Molybdenum disulfide
Carrier –  Petroleum oil
Viscosity –  108 mm² /s at 25˚C
Solids content – 30% ±0.5%
Density – 1170kg/m3
Flash point  – 196 ˚C

Method of use:
Colloidal MoS2 can be blended with most commercial oils or greases. We will advise and / or evaluate the compatibility of Colloidal MoS2 with proposed diluents, oils and additive combinations.

In blending operations involving large quantities, the oil should be heated to about 50-55˚C, since blending is more effective when oil viscosities are reduced. Pre-mix equal parts of  Colloidal MoS2 and oil diluent before blending with the balance of the oil. Maintain continuous agitation by mechanical stirring or dry blowing throughout the blending operation.

Dilution – 1:30 ratio so that final product has 1% MoS2.
