What is molybdenum sulfide?
This is the main component in molybdenite. It is a solid black powder with metallic luster. Molybdenum dioxide has the chemical formula MoS2. The melting point at 2375degC is 2375degC, its density is 4.80g/cm3 (14.5degC) and its Mohs hardness can range from 1.0 to 1.5. It begins to dissolve at 1370degC. At 1600degC, it becomes metallic molybdenum (or sulfur).
Molybdenum disulfide can not be dissolved in water, dilute or concentrated sulfuric, and is usually insoluble in alkalis, organic solvents, and acids. However, it can dissolve in aqua regia, boiled concentrated sulfuric, and 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 grease, grease, PTFE and nylon to increase lubrication and decrease friction.
Molybdenum dioxide can also be used for non-ferrous metals release agents and as a lubricant to forging dies. This will help extend the service life, improve working conditions, improve the running state, prevent damage from the surface, and prevent cold welding. Make sure that the threaded connection is in its best condition when connecting.
Molybdenum diulfide can be mixed with volatile solvents to be sprayed onto metal surfaces. It can also be added with engineering plastics in order to make 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 among advanced solid lubricants”, is another name for it. 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 is very dispersible and has low adhesion. It can be added with other greases to form a colloidal condition that does not stick to it. 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.
