What is Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder used for?

The roble had hit a record low after the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. Russia's president recently ordered exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. The speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Moscow was prepared and could shift supplies to markets such as Asia if Europe refused to buy Russian energy.

European countries, which pay mostly in euros, say Russia has no right to reset contracts.  The G7 rejected Russia's demand and urged companies not to agree to pay in robles, saying most contracts stipulated payment in euros or dollars. Wholesale gas prices in Europe have risen further recently on concerns about potential supply disruptions.

The Kremlin spokesman said, "According to the March 31 deadline set by Russia's president, we are developing all payment methods to get a simple, understandable, and feasible system for relevant European and international buyers,"

The markets and prices of more commodities like the MoSi2 Powder would be affected because of the volatile international political situations.

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.

At present, international supply chains were shocked, and logistics and transportation efficiency decreases. Geopolitical conflicts further aggravate uncertainties about the European and American economic recovery and the global commodity supply. For this reason, I assume the price of the MoSi2 Powder would not decrease significantly in the short term.
