    • 2003, Stephen F. Krar, Arthur Gill, Exploring Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, page 3-2-14,
      The multi-component alloy cermets, made up of different hard materials and binder elements, have high wear-resistance qualities that result in long tool life.
    • 2009, Edmund Isakov, Cutting Data for Turning of Steel[1], page 114:
      Cutting performance of cermets was improved after development of titanium-molybdenum-carbon-nitrogen and titanium-tungsten-carbon-nitrogen compounds with binders containing nickel, molybdenum, cobalt, or a combination thereof (Ref 3, p.91).
    • 2011, Bikramjit Basu, Mitjan Kalin, Tribology of Ceramics and Composites: Materials Science Perspective, page 356:
      Among various tribological materials, cermets are known for their excellent wear resistance under unlubricated conditions.
