COBALT



Cobalt is often alloyed with iron, nickel and other metals to make Alnico, an alloy 


of unusual magnetic strength with many important uses. Samarium-cobalt, for 


instance, is one of the highest strength magnet alloys known. Cobalt compounds 


are used to produce a brilliant and permanent blue color in ceramic glazes, glass,  


High Purity (99.999%) Cobalt Oxide (Co3O4) Powderpottery, tiles, and enamels. 


Co-60, a commercially important radioisotope, is useful as a radioactive tracer 


and gamma ray source. High Purity (99.999%) Cobalt (Co) Sputtering 


TargetCobalt is available as metal and compounds with purities from 99% to 


99.999% (ACS grade to ultra-high purity). Elemental or metallic forms include 


pellets, rod, wire and granules for evaporation source material purposes. Cobalt 


nanoparticles and nanopowders are also available. Cobalt oxides are available 


in powder and dense pellet form for such uses as optical coating and thin film 


applications. Oxides tend to be insoluble. Cobalt fluorides are another insoluble 


form for uses in which oxygen is undesirable such as metallurgy, chemical and 


physical vapor deposition and in some optical coatings. Cobalt is also available in 


soluble forms including chlorides, nitrates and acetates. These compounds can be 


manufactured as solutions at specified stoichiometries.
