Cobalt is found naturally only in chemically combined form. It is used in the preparation of magnetic, wear-resistant and high-strength alloys. Cobalt silicate and cobalt(II) aluminate give a distinctive deep blue color to glass, smalt, ceramics, inks, paints and varnishes. Lithium cobalt oxide is widely used in lithium ion battery cathodes. Several cobalt compounds are used in chemical reactions as oxidation catalysts. Other uses of cobalt are in electroplating, owing to its attractive appearance, hardness and resistance to oxidation, and as ground coats for porcelain enamels.

Cobalt Chloride

Cobalt chloride is an inorganic compound of cobalt and chlorine. Because of the ease of the hydration or dehydration reaction, and the resulting color change, cobalt chloride is used as an indicator for water in desiccants. Niche uses include its role in organic synthesis and electroplating objects with cobalt metal. It gives a blue-green color in a flame.

Cobalt Dichloride Hexahydrate

Cobalt Dichloride Hexahydrate is a blue crystalline powder that in the presence of water assumes different forms, the most stable of which has a ruby red crystalline appearance. It is soluble in water and alcohol. Cobalt Dichloride Hexahydrate is a raw material for catalysts and for production of pigments for ceramics. It is also used for the metal surface treatment industry.
