What is molybdenum sulfide?Molybdenum disulfide This is the main component in molybdenite. It is a solid black powder with metallic luster. Molybdenum dioxide has a chemical formula: MoS2. Its melting point at 2375degC is 2375degC, its density is 4.80g/cm3(14degC), while the Mohs hardness ranges between 1.0 and 1.5. It begins to dissolve at 1370 degC and is broken down into metallic molybdenum at 1600 degC.
Molybdenum disulfide can not be dissolved in water, dilute or concentrated sulfuric, and is usually insoluble in alkalis, organic solvents, and acids. However, it is soluble in aqua regia, boiled concentrated sulfuric, and in other acids.
What are molybdenum disulfide’s applications?Molybdenum disulfide can be found in many carbon brush additives used in the automobile industry and machinery industry. You can add it to lubricating oils, greases, PTFEs, nylons, and stearic acids to increase lubrication.
Molybdenum dioxide can also be used for non-ferrous metals release agents and as a lubricant to forging dies. It will improve service time, reduce surface damage, prevent cold welding, and can improve running state. Make sure that the threaded connection is in its best condition when connecting.
Molybdenum diulfide can be mixed with volatile solvents and sprayed onto metal surfaces. It can also be added to engineering plastics for lubricating elements. Molybdenum sulfide can also be used directly in electronics, spraying or electroplating as well as hardware and screws.
Molybdenum disulfide can be used as a solid lubricant. It is particularly well-suited to high temperature and high pressure. It is diamagnetic, so it can be used to produce a line photoconductor or a semiconductor of P-type and N-type conductivity. Additionally, it has the functions rectification as well as energy conversion. Molybdenum dioxide can also be used to catalyze the dehydrogenation complex hydrocarbons.
Molybdenum disulfide, also known as “The king of advanced solid Lubricants”, is also a well-known name. This solid powder is made from natural molybdenum powder after chemical purification. Molybdenum disulfide’s color is black, slightly silver-gray and has metallic luster. It is also insoluble in water. It has good dispersibility and low adhesion. It can be added with other greases to form a colloidal condition that doesn’t adhere to them. This can increase the lubricity as well as the extreme pressure of grease.
Molybdenum disulfide works well in extreme conditions, such as high temperature, high pressure, and high loads. It also prolongs equipment’s lifespan.
Molybdenum dioxidide is used in friction material to reduce friction at low temperatures, increase friction at high temperatures, and with little loss on ignition.
