What is Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder used for?

Oil futures tumbled more than $5 a barrel on news that the Biden administration is considering releasing about 1 million barrels a day from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) for several months to cool surging crude prices.

Brent crude futures were down $4.71, or 4.2 percent, at $108.58 a barrel by 0035 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures fell $5.45, or 5 percent, to $102.74 a barrel.

At an earlier time, gasoline prices had already reached record levels because of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The prices of other commodities like the MoSi2 Powder are also expected to be volatile.

Introduction to Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder
Under different conditions, silicon and molybdenum can form several different compounds, including trimolybdenum silicide (Mo3Si), pentamolybdenum trisilicide (Mo5Si3), and molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2), of which the most important is molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2). 
Molybdenum disilicide is an inorganic compound, the chemical formula is MoSi2, gray metal solid.
Molybdenum silicide has a high melting point, low density, good thermal conductivity, good electrical conductivity and excellent high-temperature oxidation resistance, high elastic modulus, low thermal expansion coefficient, high strength, and good resistance to chemical corrosion and thermal shock resistance. MoSi2 is widely used in high-temperature heating element component materials and high-temperature oxidation resistance coating materials, is also the most development potential for high-temperature structural materials and wear-resistant materials.

Applications of Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder
Molybdenum disilicide is used in the fields of high-temperature oxidation-resistant coating materials, electric heating elements, integrated electrode films, structural materials, reinforcement of composite materials, wear-resistant materials, bonding materials of structural ceramics,etc. Specifically, it can be used in:
1. Energy chemical industry: electric heating elements, high-temperature heat exchangers of atomic reactor device, gas burner, high-temperature thermocouple, and its protective tube, crucibles of melting utensils (used for melting sodium, lithium, lead, bismuth, tin, and other metals). 
2. Microelectronics industry: MoSi2 and other refractory metal silicides Ti5Si3, WSi2, and TaSi2 are important candidate materials for lsi gate and interconnect thin films. 
3. Aerospace industry: used as high-temperature oxidation-resistant coating materials. Especially as turbine engine components such as blades, impellers, burners, nozzles, and seals.
4. Automotive industry: automotive turbocharger rotor, valve body, spark plug, and engine parts.
 

What is the MoSi2 Heating Element?
Molybdenum disilicide heating element is a kind of high-density material composed of molybdenum disilicide and silicon dioxide self-forming glaze. The operating temperature can reach 1800. These components have a long service life.

The MoSi2 Powder industry has experienced demand expectations driven by the rise and the off-season tired stock driven by the seasonal decline in two rounds of the market. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and other factors, inventories of manufacturers continue to accumulate, putting pressure on market sentiment. In addition to off-season factors, the weak trend of MoSi2 Powder also reflects the market's concern about the epidemic and some other related enterprises' financial situation.
