Mo-Re and W-Re alloy

  • Molybdenum rhenium and tungsten rhenium alloy
  • Mo Re and W Re alloy

Product Details

W-re alloy is an alloy of tungsten and rhenium. One type of low rhenium alloy with rhenium under 5%; The other type is high rhenium alloy, with rhenium of 20% ~ 30%. Rhenium is also a rare metal, with little resources, it is quite expensive.

Molybdenum alloy can add 2% ~ 5% rhenium. Rhenium can improve the plasticity of molybdenum and increase the strength of molybdenum. In molybdenum, 35% rhenium was added, at room temperature, the deformation amount could reach 90%. The tensile strength, ductility and resistivity of molybdenum alloy will be increased with the increasing of rhenium content. Mo-5%Re and Mo-41%Re are usually used as thermocouple wire and also as the structural material in aerospace. Mo-50%Re can be used for high temperature structural material.


Adding the right amount of rhenium in tungsten and molybdenum, tungsten rhenium alloy and molybdenum rhenium alloy not only has good plasticity, that can be processed into a variety of structural material, but also has high hardness, high strength and high temperature resistance and other properties. Molybdenum rhenium alloy is often used in the manufacture of high speed rotating X-ray tubes, long life grid of microwave communication, space reactor core heating tube, high temperature furnace heating body and high temperature thermocouple. Tungsten-Rhenium(WRe) has been widely applied to high temperature technology, electric vacuum industry, the light bulb, atomic energy industry, analysis technology, medical and chemical industry and other fields. They are often used in the manufacture of special valve and color picture tube filament, high temperature parts, thermocouple, etc. We produce tungsten rhenium wire, rhenium molybdenum wire,tungsten rhenium bar/rod, Mo Rhenium alloy.

Rhenium and tungsten, molybdenum or platinum alloy metals and their coating materials, are widely used in electronics and aerospace industry due to their high melting point, high resistance, strong magnetism and good stability.Such as manufacturing of special incandescent light bulb shell of filament, artificial satellites and rockets, atomic reactor protection board, used as ultra high temperature heater evaporation metal, used for high temperature coating used on the rockets and missiles, spacecraft instruments and high temperature parts such as heat shield, arc discharge, electrical contactor and so on all is the use of the above characteristics of rhenium. We produce rhenium (Re) sputtering Targets for coating.
