Super alloy Elgiloy is a cobalt-chromium-nickel alloy, and provides high strength, fatigue life, ductility, and good mechanical properties. It is also corrosion resistant in various environments. It is recommended that forming should be done before heat treatment as heat treatment strengthens the material and makes it more difficult to form.

The following sections will be discussed in detail about super alloy Elgiloy.
