Molybdenum is transformed into TZM (Titanium-Zirconium-Molybdenum) by using small quantities of tiny, extremely fine carbides. TZM is stronger than pure molybdenum and possesses a higher recrystallization temperature and better creep resistance.
Max service temperature Tmax
0.4 - 0.55 %
0.06 - 0.12 %
TZM is used in high-temperature applications involving demanding mechanical loads, for example in forging tools or as rotating anodes in X-ray tubes. The recommended temperatures of use are between 700 and 1400 °C.
