Our cobalt-aluminate inoculant agents are proven to be effective in the investment casting process of super alloys. These inoculants have a consistent and optimized distribution of fine-sized grain microstructures that result in improved fatigue strength, making them ideal for delivering specific grain sizes for many industrial applications. Our standard cobalt aluminate inoculants contain a cobalt content as low as 33% and they are more cost effective in comparison to the 40% phase purity cobalt found in a typical cobalt oxide or cobalt silicate. Vibrantz inoculants also offer good slurry dispersibility due to the additional low impurity content of silver (Ag), bismuth, (Bi) and lead (Pb).

We also offer customized inoculant formulations with varying cobalt content as required based on specific applications.
