Gold is a high-quality hedge hedging tool, favored by investors. Especially in recent years, with the increasing instability of the world economy, gold has become one of the preferred asset allocations of investors because of its functions of hedging and fighting inflation.
Earlier, the worsening situation in Ukraine sent gold prices soaring to a two-year high of $2,070 an ounce. But gold, along with other commodities, fell back last week as conditions changed and bulls took profits, hitting a low of $1,895 an ounce. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the MoSi2 Powder prices.
According to China Business News, Goldman Sachs raised its gold price forecast in early March, considering Asian buyers' gold consumption demand, investment demand and central bank gold purchase demand continue to rise. Three -, six - and 12-month targets were raised to $2,300, $2,500 and $2,500 an ounce, respectively, from $1,950, $2,050 and $2,150. The last time all three accelerated was in 2010-11 when gold prices rose nearly 70%.
The World Gold Council has also noted that global gold demand is at its highest level in nearly two years, which is linked to a recovery in consumption and consumer sentiment to combat inflation.
About Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder:
MoSi2 is an intermetallic compound, molybdenum silicide is a refractory ceramic, mainly used for heating elements. It has a medium-density, a melting point of 2030 ° C, which is electrically conductive. At high temperatures, it forms a passivation layer of silica to protect it from further oxidation. The thermal stability of MoSi2 and the thermal stability of its high radiation make such materials and high radiation coatings in thermal shields from the atmosphere as they are used next to WSI2. MoSi2 is a material with a four-square crystal structure (α-modified) gray metal; its β-modification is hexagonal and unstable. It is insoluble in most acids but is dissolved in nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid.
Although MoSi2 has excellent oxidation and high Young's modulus at temperatures above 1000 ° C, it is brittle at lower temperatures. Moreover, at 1200 ° C or more, it will lose creep resistance. These properties are limited to their structural materials but can be shifted by using it as a composite with another material.
Molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) is a promising candidate material for high-temperature structural applications. It is a high melting point (2030 C) material with excellent oxidation resistance and a moderate density (6.24 g/cm3). However, low toughness at low temperatures and high creep rates at elevated temperatures have hindered its commercialization in structural applications. Much effort has been invested in MoSi2 composites as alternatives to pure molybdenum disilicide for oxidizing and aggressive environments. Molybdenum disilicide-based heating elements have been used extensively in high-temperature furnaces. The low electrical resistance of silicides in combination with high thermal stability, electron-migration resistance, and excellent diffusion-barrier characteristics is important for microelectronic applications.

Chemical Composition of Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder:
How is Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder produced?
Molybdenum disilicide and MoSi2-based materials are usually made by sintering. Plasma spraying can be used to produce dense monoliths and composite forms. The material produced by this method may contain a certain proportion of β-MoSi2 due to its rapid cooling.
Applications of Molybdenum Silicide MoSi2 Powder:
Molybdenum disilicide heating elements can be used for temperatures up to 1800 ° C, in electric furnaces used in laboratory and production environment in the production of glass, steel, electronics, ceramics, and in heat treatment of materials. Molybdenum disilicide is used in microelectronics as A Contact Material.
MoSi2 is a conductive silicide that has an oxidation property due to a stable silica layer on its surface at a high temperature.
Although the top MoSi2 element can operate at temperatures up to 1800 ° C, the material is very brittle, which may suffer serious creep during use. However, they have process advantages because they can work under high electrical loads without aging, and will not exhibit increased resistivity during use. They have antioxidant properties in air, oxygen and oxygen-rich atmosphere.
Moreover, they can be used with ammonia, nitrogen, hydrogen, a rare gas, and limited vacuum, but due to the failure of the protective oxide layer, the operating temperature and life can be reduced.
MoSi2 elements are ready-made elements and can be made into a bending or straight form of a variety of sizes. These elements are mainly used in production furnaces and laboratory furnaces in ceramics, glass, steel, electronics and heat treatment industries.
Amazingness and high-temperature elasticity make MoSi2 a very promising material for high-temperature applications such as gas turbine engines. Many researchers strive to improve high temperature creep resistance and low-temperature ductility. However, there are no commercially available composites with all preferred features.

Molybdenum Silicide Health & Safety Information
Since February, gold has enjoyed a smooth upward run on the back of surging US inflation and the brewing of war. While expectations of rate rises have also risen in tandem over this period, gold had been largely pre-priced and the underlying driver of tightening expectations had come from inflation continuing to rise to record highs. The risk aversion caused by the continued tension in the war also provided an important short-term support for gold. This will have a certain impact on the price of the MoSi2 Powder and the market of the MoSi2 Powder.
