From Kennametal's website:

Composition: A specially engineered cobalt-enriched carbide grade with thick MTCVD TiCN-Al2O3 coating for maximum wear resistance. Application: An excellent fi nishing to medium machining grade for a variety of workpiece materials, including most steels, ferritic, martensitic, and PH stainless steels, and cast irons. The cobalt-enriched substrate offers a balanced combination of deformation resistance and edge toughness, while the thick coating layers offer outstanding abrasion resistance and crater wear resistance for high-speed machining. Smooth coating provides resistance to edge build-up and microchipping and produces excellent surface fi nishes.
