The Ceratizit Group offers from-stock rods with two helical coolant holes, as sintered, in the high-performance CTS24Z grade. This carbide grade is designed for the machining of tools out of difficult materials like titanium or corrosion-resistant alloys for high-temperature applications.

Similar in hardness to the CTS18D and CTS20D grades, this grade nevertheless features a higher toughness. The company says that in everyday production it provides protection against breakage and provides consistent tool performance. The titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) is frequently used in the aerospace industry and medical systems sector. According to the company, comparative tests when machining this material have shown that this grade can increase tool life compared to conventional carbide grades.

Solid rods are available in this grade as both ground and as sintered.
