Molybdic Disulfide, Trioxide
-In glazes, glasses, and bodies, small amounts (-0.2%) act as a wetting agent during the melt phase. It lowers surface tension dramatically. This can encourage the development of crystals in crystalline glazes. Moly can give an iridescent quality to crystals and lustres.
-Also used in enamels as an adherence promoter and in some stains.
-It oxidizes quickly above 800F.
