Molybdenum wire

Molybdenum wire (Moly wire) can resistance high temperature and corrosion, molybdenum wire is used as heating materials of high-temperature resistance furnace, cutting wire for EDM; With good electrical conductivity, molybdenum wire also can be applied to electronic tube socket, stent filament incandescent lamp, halogen lamps, discharge tube sealing material, lead-wire, tungsten filament with the mandrel, the grid. Molybdenum wire can be also used as cathode, spray material.
Our molybdenum wire is produced by stretching the Molybdenum rod to various diameter after the rod undergo the pass rolling and rotary forging to about 3mm.
Advantages of our molybdenum wire:

  • Good stability
  • Good tensile strength
  • High precision cutting
  • Low elongation

We can provide molybdenum wires (Moly wire) with the different diameter, ranging from 0.18mm to 3.0mm. We provide Molybdenum wire for varies applications.

Molybdenum wire for lighting:

Molybdenum wires are used to manufacture the electric lighting materials, like mandrel, support wire, lead-in wire, heating wire, etc.
