Coated Grades

Grade TP1500 from Seco Tools is designed to meet the demands required for turning steels at high cutting speeds without sacrificing the toughness needed for reliability, the company says. This grade was developed using Seco's Duratomic process, where the crystalline structure is manipulated at the atomic level to produce a very durable coating.

Grade TP1500 from Seco Tools is designed to meet the demands required for turning steels at high cutting speeds without sacrificing the toughness needed for reliability, the company says. This grade was developed using Seco's Duratomic process, where the crystalline structure is manipulated at the atomic level to produce a very durable coating.

While targeted specifically for steel machining, the coating and substrate properties also make the grade a good choice for a range of cast iron applications, especially those involving ductile and compacted graphite iron. It is offered in a range of insert geometries to cover turning applications from finishing to heavy roughing where productivity and/or long tool life are of major importance.
