Molybdenum Glass Melting Electrodes from Plansee

In this video Astrid van Zoomeren from Plansee talks about the molybdenum glass melting electrodes. Glass melting electrodes must withstand extremely high temperatures and aggressive glass melts. Molybdenum from PLANSEE is the right material for these challenging conditions. PLANSEE supplies glass melting electrodes made from MoZrO2 for glass production involving particularly aggressive glass melts. Small quantities of zirconium oxide (ZrO2) added to molybdenum enhance the properties of the pure material.

MoZrO2 offers a particularly high level of corrosion resistance to glass melts as well as better creep resistance than pure molybdenum. Major areas of application for MoZrO2 include glass production for the solar industry and container glass industry.
