From Kennametal's website:

Composition: A multilayered coating with thick MTCVD TiCN-Al2O3 layers applied over a carbide substrate specifi cally engineered for cast irons. Application: Delivers consistent performance in high-speed machining of grey and ductile irons. The substrate design permits the insert to stay in the cut for a long time at high speeds with minimum deformation. The thick CVD coating and post-coat treatment provide superior wear resistance ensuring long and consistent tool life. Can be applied both in continuous and lightly interrupted cuts.
