Cobalt Scrap Recycling:
A Leader in Cobalt Buying and Selling

We recycle and reclaim all forms of pure cobalt and cobalt containing scrap—powder, residues, solids, turnings, alloyed scrap, catalysts, filter cake, based alloys, sludge, overspray, refinery and mining byproducts, furnace scrap, flue dusts, pond tailings, leach residue and battery scrap.

What is Cobalt?

Cobalt is a chemical element with symbol Co and atomic number 27. Like nickel, cobalt is found in the Earth’s crust only in chemically combined form, save for small deposits found in alloys of natural meteoric iron. The free element, produced by reductive smelting, is a hard, lustrous, silver-gray metal. Cobalt, like iron, can be magnetized and so is used to make magnets. It is alloyed with aluminum and nickel to make particularly powerful magnets. Other alloys of cobalt are used in jet turbines and gas turbine generators, where high-temperature strength is important.

What are Cobalt Alloys?

Cobalt-based alloys and superalloys generally have a base combination of cobalt-chromium, with chromium acting as a strengthening alloy. Adding tungsten and/or molybdenum can strengthen the alloys even more.

In addition to their strength, cobalt-based alloys are corrosion, wear, and heat resistant, making them popular for use in a number of industries and in challenging applications, like gas turbines.
