As its name suggests, cobalt chrome is comprised of chrome, cobalt, and other metals like molybdenum, nickel, and others. It is not easily bent, broken, or scratched, and the surface can be polished and buffed into a smooth, mirror-like finish. Parts made from cobalt chrome machining have outstanding strength, wear resistance, and other high-performance characteristics.
Because of its high degree of hardness, cobalt chrome is difficult to machine. Marver Med is up to the challenge.
