Adding molybdenum in steel gave the same result as the addition of tungsten, molybdenum, but less quantity. Then began using molybdenum alloy with iron in various armaments: in the armor, in the weapons («Winchester»). Molybdenum bearings of were made with the advent of heavy engines. Molybdenum is used in many industries. For example, in the light, radio, in the manufacture of glass. Even in the space industry this metal useful. Here, it makes heat-resistant alloys that can make the temperature of 1500 degrees Celsius.
