The high melting point 4750 degrees and comparatively large potential supply of molybdenum suggest that this metal may be useful at temperatures above the melting points of most metals and alloys. In order to use it at high temperatures in the presence of oxygen, however the molybdenum must be protected against oxidation, and hence it is logical to apply a protective ceramic coating.
