The temperature dependence of kinematic viscosity of liquid cobalt in the range 1490–1700°C and the influence of the degree of cobalt overheating on its overcooling were studied by viscometry and differential thermal analysis. It was found that liquid cobalt undergoes a structural transition near 1595°C, which manifests itself as a sharp change in the viscosity and the activation energy for viscous flow at this temperature and is accompanied by a considerable increase in crystallization ability.
