To Molybdenum

Tantalum, Niobium

Molybdenum is a known for its strength and toughness and is often used in alloys to improve harden-ability, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. It also is strong at elevated temperatures with a high melting point. Molybdenum is not very ductile or malleable. It is often used in spacecraft, aircraft and missile parts.
