SILICIDES - The top choice for high-performance heating elements

Silicides are binary metallic compounds containing silicon and are usually classified as intermetallic compounds. Our product portfolio includes molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2), tungsten disilicide (WSi2) and zirconium disilicide (ZrSi2). Molybdenum disilicide occupies the dominant role because it has been used for many years internationally in high-performance heating elements (> 1,700°C). Molybdenum disilicide has a unique selling point in this area.
