Made in flat, square or specialty shaped profiles per your requirements.

Cobalt alloys, often referred to as cobalt-based alloys, are a group of metallic materials that contain a significant proportion of cobalt in their composition, along with other elements such as chromium, nickel, tungsten, and molybdenum. These alloys are known for their exceptional combination of properties, including high-temperature strength, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance. United Wire is capable of making cobalt alloy shaped wire for a wide variety of applications!

Cobalt as a Base Metal

Cobalt is the primary element in these alloys, typically constituting 50% or more of the alloy composition. The specific alloying elements added to cobalt can vary depending on the desired properties and applications.

Alloy Compositions

There are several types of cobalt alloys, each with specific alloy compositions tailored to meet particular requirements. For example, Stellite alloys are a well-known group of cobalt-based alloys used for their excellent wear resistance and high-temperature performance.

Here are some key characteristics of cobalt alloys:

Cobalt alloys exhibit excellent strength and stability at elevated temperatures, making them suitable for use in high-temperature environments. This property is particularly important in industries like aerospace and gas turbine manufacturing.

Many cobalt alloys have good corrosion resistance, especially in aggressive environments, such as those with high acidity or high-temperature oxidizing conditions. This corrosion resistance is valuable in chemical processing, oil and gas, and other corrosive industries.
Cobalt alloys are known for their outstanding wear resistance, making them suitable for applications that involve high friction and abrasion. They are often used in the production of cutting tools, bearings, and components subject to wear and tear.
Certain cobalt alloys are biocompatible and can be used in medical applications. They are often used in orthopedic implants, dental prosthetics, and other medical devices where high strength and resistance to wear are essential.
Cobalt alloys can exhibit magnetic properties, depending on their composition. Some cobalt alloys are magnetic and are used in applications that require magnetic materials, such as in the production of sensors and magnetic recording devices.
