Laboratory analysis and expertise of cobalt and cobalt alloys

Chemical analysis of cobalt alloys: one of FILAB’s many skills

Cobalt alloys are used for their resistance to heat and corrosion, which allows them to be used in a wide variety of applications. Cobalt alloys are therefore used in the medical field, in aeronautics and even in the navy to name a few. 

For over 30 years, FILAB laboratory has been providing metallurgical analysis of cobalt samples for hundreds of clients, some of which were provided under ISO 17025 accreditation. 

FILAB laboratory provides its experience and specific skills to inspect the quality of your cobalt alloys:

  • Chemical composition analysis and grade inspection of cobalt alloys
