Global Cobalt Alloy Powder Market: Overview
Cobalt alloy powder, as the name suggests, is a fine granular and crushed cobalt alloy. Several processes are employed to obtain cobalt alloy powder. One of the prominent methods entails spraying of molten cobalt alloy under very high pressure to obtain fine granular powder. The manufacture of cobalt alloy powder involves a series of processes: melting the alloy; atomizing the melt; filtering the powder; collecting the powder and drying it; grading the dried powder on various parameters; inspection; and packaging for sale. Several grades of cobalt alloy powder can be manufactured, depending on type of atomizing gas used to ‘blow’ the molten cobalt alloy from a nozzle tip. Cobalt alloy powder can be manufactured in a various particle sizes ranging from 5 microns to more than 1000 microns. Several types of cobalt alloys such as CoCr, CoCrMo, and CoCrNi are available, which used for different applications.
