Tech Tip #35 - Tap Coatings

Below are Kennametal’s current recommendations for taps in various materials. They are listed in order of preference. Those in parentheses should be viewed as alternatives, but are not in order of preference.

Maxi #1 is Kennametal’s designation for nitride. Increase SFM by 50% for TiN and TiCN, and 100% for TiAlN.
