Historically, cobalt has been used to manufacture brilliant blue and green pigments and acts as a Rubber Adhesion Promoter in radial tires. Today cobalt is also appearing in super strong magnets, high-tech turbines and even in cancer treatments. It’s used in alloys to impart greater hardness and corrosion resistance. Its petrochemical applications include refinery catalysts, Fisher Tropsch catalysts and oxidation catalysts. Lithium ion batteries also represent a sizable and growing segment of cobalt use.
Beautiful blue Cobalt is a transition metal, primarily mined as a secondary metal, a by-product of nickel and copper.
