NiMo50 Lumps of defined size 50% Mo balance Ni


The nickel-molybdenum 50% master alloy offers an easy and reliable means of adding molybdenum to nickel alloys, for instance super alloys. It has a lower density and lower melting point than molybdenum, which melts at 2610°C and weighs approximately 10.2g/cm³.

Applications of NiMo Master Alloys

  • NiMo is used for precipitation hardening, solid solution strengthening
  • NiMo is used in the formation of complex carbides in nickel-based super alloys
