These cutters are coated with Zirconium Nitride (Zrn). This is a specialty coating which makes it most suitable for temperature sensitive materials. ZrN had excellent corrosion-resistance, lubricity and hardness to suit many applications. This coating has a unique ability to reduce the build-up edge on cutting tools which results in a better surface finish.
ZrN works well for machining Titanium and Aluminum Alloys, Nickel, Brass, Copper, Cast Iron and Zinc.
All of our cutters are manufactured here in the US and begin life as a blank of US carbide. There's nothing imported here!
* Note: If you have or are purchasing a Shapeoko, please be sure you are purchasing a precision collet and nut to be able to use these cutters.
