Especially in the field of orthopedics the family of Cobalt-base alloys are in high demand due to their high density and resulting good visibility in X-ray light.
But also in the field of cardiovascular stents the alloys L605 and MP35N are in growing demand due to their outstanding corrosion features.
Characteristics of Cobalt-base alloys:
- high density
- high E-module
- small grain size
