T515 – Machine Parts – T515


Stable machining and extended tool life
- Highly versatile grade for cast iron turning with newly developed substrate and coating
- Improved wear resistance due to thick Al2O3 layer, extending tool life by 3 times compared to the competitor
- Stable machining even in interrupted machining of FCV material (compacted vermicular graphite cast iron)
