Cobalt Boron (CoB) Master Alloy

Cobalt Boron (CoB)


  • In cobalt base superalloys to deoxidize the melt and to improve their strength at elevated temperatures.
  • In cobalt base amorphous metals to add the required amount of boron.
  • In cobalt base hard facing alloys to add the required amount of boron.

Physical properties

The master alloy has a liquidus point of 1400 - 1450°C. Its density is 6.0 - 6.5 g/cm3.
