Alloy 6b® is a cobalt-based steel alloy that provides excellent corrosion resistance in extreme elements and high temperature environments, while also providing outstanding resistance to most types of wear. Alloy 6b® cobalt chromium alloy provides inherent wear resistance that is not the direct result of heat-treatment, plating, nitriding, or other methods used to produce a superficial hardness on metal parts.

Magellan Metals is an industry leading provider of cobalt chrome high-temp alloy for your exclusive project needs. Contact us for more information regarding Alloy 6b® high performance cobalt alloy, or call us at 203-838-5700 and we will happily answer any cobalt chromium alloy questions that you may have.
