Applications of Molybdenum Powders in Thermal Sprays

The molybdenum thermal spray powders offered by the company are flowable, spherical, and designed to enhance and restore surfaces from small metal components to large-area coatings.

H.C. Starck Solutions’ success in synthesizing molybdenum powders of the highest quality for thermal spray applications has been mainly driven by innovation. The molybdenum thermal spray powders offered by the company are flowable, spherical, and designed to enhance and restore surfaces from small metal components to large-area coatings.

H.C. Starck Solutions’ Thermal Spray Powder Advantage

H.C. Starck Solutions’ molybdenum thermal spray powders increase the lifetime of products by fixing ragged and damaged surfaces, and protecting against the destructive effects of wear, erosion, and corrosion. The company’s thermal spraying powders are produced by the disposition of powders that cover a substrate forming an even coating of contiguous layers.

Diverse Spraying Processes

  • Plasma
  • High-velocity air fuel (HVAF)
  • Flame
  • High-velocity oxy-fuel coating spraying (HVOF)
  • Detonation
