Create implants or aero engines with cobalt-chrome AM powders
Cobalt-chrome metal alloys were originally developed for aircraft engines and heat-resistant materials. Cobalt-chrome alloys have very outstanding strength and toughness as well as wear and corrosion resistance. Their corrosion resistance is better than that of stainless steel. In general, the cobalt-chrome alloy consists of chrome, cobalt and other metals such as molybdenum and nickel. Cobalt-chrome or cobalt-chromium is commonly used in complex and demanding applications such as gas turbines, and in medical and dental applications, but also for rings and other jewelry thanks to its biocompatibility. Cobalt-chrome alloys are often used for artificial joints and dental casting.
