Cobalt chrome / CoCr
Alternative Designations: CoCr | F - 75 (ASTM)
Cobalt Chrome is a high corrosion resistance alloy. THe formation of a passive film of Cr203 protects the primary material of this alloy. The mechanical properties are excellent due to increased hardness and tensile strength. This alloy has seen wide applications in the medical and dentistry industries due to its biocompatibility, wear resistance, and chemical inertness. In addition, it is used in the production of wind turbines, cutting tools, and other mechanical parts that require high wear – resistance.
