    Abstract: A surface-coated cutting tool includes a base material and a coating formed on a surface of the base material. The coating includes a first hard coating layer including crystal grains having a sodium chloride-type crystal structure. The crystal grain has a layered structure in which a first layer composed of nitride or carbonitride of AlxTi1?x and a second layer composed of nitride or carbonitride of AlyTi1?y are stacked alternately into one or more layers. The first layer each has an atomic ratio x of Al varying in a range of 0.76 or more to less than 1. The second layer each has an atomic ratio y of Al varying in a range of 0.45 or more to less than 0.76. The largest value of difference between the atomic ratio x and the atomic ratio y is 0.05?x?y?0.5.

  • Patent number: 9701576
    Abstract: Disclosed are articles that are provided with a haptically-perceptible surface. The articles include a coated glass or glass ceramic substrate which is provided with a layer with haptic properties so that the layer has a haptically perceptible texture. The layer includes texturing inorganic and/or polysiloxane-based particles which are fixed on the substrate by a layer-forming material. The particles cause protrusions on the layer and so produce the haptically perceptible texture.
