Overview Refractory Metal Markets


Molybdenum’s role in the electronics market has been an important one since the earliest days of vacuum tubes. Common electronic applications include components used to manufacture electrical devices, including setter tiles for sintering ceramic substrates and multilayer ceramic circuits, as well as physical-vapor deposition masks. Molybdenum is also used for thermal-management applications when paired with copper and is a necessary part of high-power diodes and rectifiers as well as field-emitter components in flat-panel displays.
