This is our most popular and useful cobalt alloy. Cobalt #6 offers an excellent balance between impact, heat, corrosion and metal-to-metal abrasion resistance. Outstanding anti-galling properties, superior high temperature hardness and resistance to cavitation erosion make Cobalt #6 perfect to use as valve trim in steam engines or repairing worn machine parts. Ideal for many hardsurfacing applications because of its resistance to mechanical and chemical degradation at extreme temperatures.
High pressure-high temperature valves, agitators, chainsaw bars, digestors, hot oil pump parts, extruder screws, scraper knives, hot trimming dies, hot punches.
