Durability is very important property of every cutting material. This property of cutting materials defined theirs life-time. Technical science defines a lot of different factors, that they may be cause of shorter life-time of cutting tool. Maximally possible elimination of these factors is necessary for optimization of cutting materials life-time. Durability of cutting materials is defined in standard ISO 3685. The main part of standard ISO 3685 is T-vc dependence definition for selected cutting materials. One of these cuting materials contained in this standard is cutting ceramic. Standard ISO 3685 contains instructions how to create T-vc dependence for cutting tools made of cutting ceramic. In this standard are only instructions how to create T-vc dependence according to Taylor, but last part of every experiment is analytical expression of tested dependence. The article describes process how to define and analytically express T-vc dependence for cutting ceramic (Al2O3).
