Cobalt is useful in applications that utilize its magnetic properties, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and/or its strength at elevated temperatures.
As a group, the cobalt-base alloys may be generally described as wear resistant, corrosion resistant, and heat resistant (strong even at high temperatures). Many of the properties of the alloys arise from the crystallographic nature of cobalt (in particular its response to stress), the solid-solution-strengthening effects of chromium, tungsten, and molybdenum, the formation of metal carbides, and the corrosion resistance imparted by chromium.
7 Uses of Cobalt You Mightn’t Know Cobalt is a silver-gray metal with element symbol Co, atomic number 27, a melting point of 1495 ℃, and a boiling point of 2870 ℃. Due to its good temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and magnetic properties, cobalt is widely used in production and our life. In this article, we’ll […]
What’s Cobalt Alloy and What Are the Cobalt Alloy Properties? Cobalt (Co) is a lustrous, silvery-blue, non-ferrous metal found in smaltite, cobaltite, and erythrite minerals. Cobalt alloy is a kind of metal alloys containing cobalt as the base material. Cobalt alloys have excellent high strength and toughness, high-temperature strength and resistance, and good corrosion resistance. Cobalt […]
