Description As the demands for the quality and speed of machining increase, the application of protective coatings on the used cutting tools becomes ever more important. Nowadays used ceramic protective coatings exhibit high hardness and toughness, however, they suffer from inherent brittleness. This can lead to a premature failure of the coating and of therefore of the cutting tool as a whole due to rapid crack propagation. Thus, a new generation of coatings combining hardness and moderate ductility is sought for.
