Application areas

MoW materials are primarily used for the manufacture of zinc as well as for stirring tools in the glass industry. In addition, MoW alloys are used to produce sputtering targets for coating flat screens. MoW layers possess enhanced etchability, a property which is of value for the manufacture of thin-film transistors.
