This Article provides a general overview of the physical, corrosion and mechanical properties, alloy compositions, applications, and product forms of cobalt-base alloys as wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and/or heat-resistant materials. The discussion is largely focused on the cobalt-based alloys for wear resistance, as this is the single largest application area of cobalt-base alloys.
