Cobalt is a transition metal that was used in the periodic table between iron and nickel. This has a high melting point (1493 ° C) and maintains a high temperature tolerance. Cobalt is ferromagnetic, similar to the iron or nickel. It can retain its magnetic properties to 1100 ° C, a temperature higher than any other material. Ferromagnetism is the most effective form of magneticism:

 it is the only one that produces forces that are usually large enough to be felt and is responsible for the magnets that are used in daily life. Such peculiar properties make the metal suitable for two high-tech specialist purposes: superalloys and cathodes for batteries.
