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
