- The outstanding oxidation resistance of molybdenum disilicide at 2400 F and above was found to depend on the formation of a protective siliceous coating which a-cristobalie has been identified. Molybdenum disilicide is not inherently resistant to oxidation and in powdered form burns at low temperatures.Melting and casting experiments have demonstrated the decomposition of the material at the melting point. The room-temperature modulus of elasticity has been determined and electric-resistivity data are given to 2000 F.
