Seco Tools added a new product in its family of Duratomic-technology-based TP grades to include TP3501, a grade that provides optimal application security. The new grade is ideal for steel turning applications that involve heavy interruptions, less stable machines, small internal features or weak setups due to part size or shape.
TP3501 joins TP2501, TP1501 and TP0501 to complete the grade offering for steel turning and features Seco’s latest Duratomic technology-based coatings for high and reliable performance in specific cutting materials and applications. Introduced by Seco in 2007 as the industry’s first textured, -based Al2O3 coating, Duratomic technology manipulates coating components at an atomic level to achieve improved mechanical and thermal properties. The technology enhances performance by attaining the elusive balance of toughness and hardness.
