From Kennametal's website:

Composition: A multilayered coating with moderately thick MTCVD TiCN-Al2O3 layers over a highly deformation-resistant carbide substrate. Application: Designed for high-speed machining of grey and ductile irons. The substrate and coating architecture together with post-coat treatment ensure a tremendous tool life advantage, especially when cutting higher tensile strength ductile and grey irons where workpiece size consistency and reliability of tool life are critical. Excellent both in continuous cuts and varied depths of cut.
