  • -alumina coating consisting essentially of heating the cutting tool body while bringing the cutting tool body in contact with a hydrogen carrier gas to which has been added CO2, followed by CO, and than AlCl3 so as to deposit an alpha-alumina layer on the cutting tool body, wherein the oxidation potential of the hydrogen carrier gas is controlled by maintaining a content of H2 O in the carrier gas below 20 ppm of H2 O prior to nucleation of said alpha-Al2 O3.
