Rare earth metals have typical metal properties. They have strong chemical activity and can form a variety of compounds, including hydrides, chlorides, silicides, carbides, organic / inorganic salts and complexes. This is the basis for the rare earth metal in the metallurgical industry as a purification, impurity removal and refinement modifier. Rare earth metals are unstable […]

The finished products of niobium and niobium alloy materials and their processing and preparation processes need to be annealed and heat treated. The heat treatment methods include homogenization heat treatment, stress relief heat treatment, recrystallization heat treatment and mechanical heat treatment. -Homogenization heat treatment. The homogenization heat treatment is to eliminate defects such as metastable phases and […]

Molybdenum-rare earth oxide alloy (Mo-REO), also called rare earth molybdenum, is an alloy of molybdenum and rare earth element oxides, which is an oxide dispersion-strengthened alloy, similar to rare earth tungsten. Commonly used rare earth element oxides are Y2O3, La2O3, CeO2, and Nd2O3, Sm2O3, Gd2O3, and Sc2O3. They are usually added in the alloy in an […]

Scandium (Sc, atomic number 21) is a rare earth element with atomic weight 44.955908. Its melting point is 2,806°F (1,541°C). The appearance of its metal form is silvery-white while slightly yellowish or pinkish cast when oxidized in air. It can be dissolved slowly in most dilute acids. Similar to the early founded lanthan and yttrium, in the fullerene […]

The most common definition of refractory metals includes five elements: niobium, molybdenum, tantalum, tungsten, and rhenium. They share some properties, including a melting point above 2000 °C and high hardness at room temperature. Their machineabilities are quite different, we will introduce the processed & applications for these metal in solid bar form here. Most common processing […]

The method is basically the same as the method for preparing tungsten powder. The hydrogen reduction method of molybdenum oxide is still the only method for producing molybdenum powder. The raw material for the production of molybdenum powder is generally ammonium paramolybdate 3(NH4)O·7MoO3·4H2O. Ammonium paramolybdate can be converted to MoO3 or MoO2 by calcination or hydrogen reduction. […]
