Hardmetal company Ceratizit says that its CT-GS20Y carbide grade has been nominated for a “Best of Industry” award in the sustainability category.

According to the company, the new material, suitable for tool manufacturers is the first of its kind for which a verified product carbon footprint (PCF) can be calculated. “With this grade, our customers can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of their own products and at the same time benefit from higher supply security,” Ceratizit said.

The company was nominated for the award by German technology magazine MM Maschinenmarkt.
