Minimize Downtime and Finish Strong

KCU10B upgrades Kennametal’s existing KCU10 with a newly engineered KENGold™ PVD, multilayer coating that makes machining from one material to another easy while also achieving consistency in cutting. The nano-composite coating has an enhanced coating adhesion that delivers better flank and chipping resistance. Upgrade your multi-material projects and beat deadlines when working on steels, stainless steels, cast iron, high-temp alloys and non-ferrous materials.



A Closer Look at the KENGold PVD Coating Technology

This multilayer nano composite coating technology is comprised of three layers, each with unique protection properties:

  • The TiSiN top layer is gold for easy wear identification.
  • The AITiSiN second layer is a super-hard nanostructured interlayer for superior wear resistance.
  • The AITiN third layer is a low-stress base layer for excellent flaking resistance.
  • Multilayer coating applied to cemented carbide delivering greater thermal deformation resistance and exceptional edge wear resistance.
