Small quantities of lanthanum oxide particles (0.3% to 0.7%) give the molybdenum a so-called stacked fiber structure. This special microstructure is stable at up to 2000°C. Molybdenum-lanthanum oxide is therefore also creep-resistant even under extreme conditions of use.

This alloy is mostly machined to produce furnace components such as stranded and other wires, sintering and annealing boats or evaporator coils. In the lighting industry, molybdenum-lanthanum oxide is used, for example, for retaining and feed wires.
