If you're using cermets or alumina based ceramic inserts, they normally cost even less than coated carbide--so there is basically no risk.
Application of cermet particles can help to overcome the problem of carbide dissolution, and as a result increase wear and corrosion resistance of hardfacings [13].
Garry Jankowski suggested an idea we probably wouldn't have thought of ourselves since cermets and wipers are a little exotic.
In terms of forecasting durability of tools, made from different alloys (hardmetals, cermets, tool steels), testing of adhesive wear resistance (in the conditions used in this research) permits tool life to be assessed only when materials of similar nature (e.
