Analysis of China's Molybdenum Disulfide Market

Molybdenum disulfide is the main component of molybdenite. It is a black solid powder with a metallic sheen. Its chemical formula MoS₂ has a melting point of 1185 °C, a density of 4.80g / cm³ (14 °C), and a Mohs hardness of 1.0 to 1.5.

Molybdenum disulfide is an important solid lubricant, especially suitable for high temperature and pressure. It is also diamagnetic, can be used as a linear photoconductor and a semiconductor showing P-type or N-type conductivity, and has the functions of rectification and energy conversion. Molybdenum disulfide can also be used as a catalyst for dehydrogenation of complex hydrocarbons.

There are three leading manufacturers in China, first, Exploiter Molybdenum Co.,Ltd, second, Jinduicheng Molybdenum Co.,Ltd, third, Luoyang Tongrun Nano Technology Co., Ltd.

China molybdenum disulfide manufacturers can produce about 3000 MT each year, 30% of that will be sold to local market, and the balance 70% will be exported to the global market.

From the current consumer market of molybdenum disulfide, the addition of lubricants and greases accounts for nearly 80% of the total consumption. It is mainly used in the automotive, industrial machinery, machinery, aerospace, and electronic communications industries. Powder lubrication is mainly used for metal wire drawing, internal coating of weapon bore walls, etc. Plate lubrication is organically blended to make a lubricating plate or lubricating block used for translational rolling lubrication of large equipment.

Composite materials are prepared by compounding molybdenum disulfide with nylon, plastic, etc. into equipment parts. The preparation of anticorrosive materials provides a new market for molybdenum disulfide. By applying the stability of molybdenum disulfide to anaerobic acid, it can provide anticorrosion protection for pipelines and tower kettles in the chemical and petroleum industries through film formation and spraying techniques.

"Molybdenum disulfide is a solid powder made by changing the molecular structure of natural molybdenum concentrate powder after chemical purification. The color is black with silvery gray, metallic luster, it has a smooth feel when touched, and it is insoluble in water. " Doctor Roger says from Luoyang Tongrun.

"The product has the advantages of good dispersibility and non-adhesion, and can be added to various greases to form a non-adhesive colloid state, which can increase the lubricity and extreme pressure of the grease. " Roger adds, "It is also suitable for high temperature, high pressure, high speed and high load Mechanical working conditions to extend equipment life."

Molybdenum disulfide can also be used in friction materials.The main function is to reduce friction at low temperatures and increase friction at high temperatures.The burning loss is small and it is volatile in friction materials.
