Tool Material Variable available to Post?

Hi all.  I'm new to NX and learning to customize our setup.  I'm writing a post custom command that grabs and uses tool parameters to build a standard tool search code.  I'm wanting to grab the tool material and concatenate it to the tool code.  For example: a 1/2" 2 flute carbide endmill might yield something like "EM-0.50002FL-CAR".   I haven't been able to find a mom variable that will allow me to get the value of the tool material.  Any ideas?  Thanks for the help!

Try this mom variable. I have it in my post but it was commented out so not sure if it works.
