Lowers surface tension of melts and thus can be used to encourage crystal development (i.e. with titanium), variegate colorants, impart silvery coloration, opacify. Also used in yellow stains and as a color stabilizer and in lustres to add gold coloration. It is generally a weak influence in these areas.

MoO3 can varporize and have effects on other glazes.
