Cobalt is a durable and oxidation resistant metal with a hard and dark color. Despite being used as a paint material in antiquity, its discovery as a metal was much later than nickel, in 1735 by Georg Brandt.

0.001 percent cobalt is found in the Earth's crust; it is obtained as a side product of iron, nickel, copper, zinc and manganese. Pure cobalt is found in mines in a small proportion and is used in high proportions in the composition of different alloys.

Cobalt Usage Areas:

  • In glass and metal assemblies, jet engine gas turbines
  • Stainless steel production
  • Magnets and data storage devices
  • Super alloys used in jet motor gas turbine s
  • Electroplated covering process
  • High capacity lithium batteries used in electronics
  • Color transmitter pigments in painting industry
