Cobalt chrome’s material characteristics make it ideal for a wide range of applications in aerospace, medical and specifically dental restorations.
The cobalt chrome family of powders encompasses the MP1, SP2 and RPD alloys. All these powders are designed and tested for use on EOS’ metal systems.
All EOS cobalt chrome powders are shipped with an inspection certificate (according to EN 10204, Type 3.1) showing the results of the extensive QA testing not only of the powder itself but also of test parts built on a dedicated system with a dedicated process.
EOS also offers a wide range of validated processes for each of the above materials. These offer the optimal combination of parameters (e.g. laser power, layer thickness, etc.) in order to ensure that the properties of the 3D printed part are consistently achieved.
This powder is a class IIa medical device in accordance with annex IX rule 8 of the MDD 93/42/EEC. It is a cobalt-based metal-ceramic alloy intended for the production of Porcelain-Fused to Metal (PFM) dental restorations, specifically crowns and bridges.
