To perform high-quality cutting of hard materials such as ceramics and all its types, it is necessary to use appropriate diamond blades. This is a product made of metal and containing high amount of diamond grit on its cutting edge.
Depending on their properties, blades may vary in cost. We offer you high-quality products with long service life and provide a perfectly smooth cut without chips.
With this tool it becomes possible to cut not only ceramic but also all types of artificial and natural stone, because diamond is regarded to be the hardest known material in the world.
Types of diamond blades for ceramic tile
There are several categories of diamond blades for stone depending on what they can cut but our blades are multipurpose. They can cut both ceramic and other materials, such as marble or granite. Also, any type of concrete without reinforcement can be cut with such a blade.
So, diamond blades differ only in sizes: 125 mm, 115 mm, 180 mm, 230 mm, 350 mm.
The choice of one or another blade depends on an used power tool. For small angle grinders 115 or 125 mm blades are usually used. When working with larger grinders, 230 mm ones are required. 350 mm blades are installed on industrial power tools.
In addition to ceramic circles, there are also diamond cutting blades for the following materials:
- Concrete, both reinforced and unreinforced. Cutting is performed thanks to the increased concentration of diamond grit on cutting edge. Brick can be cut as well.
- Artificial stone based on cement with fine gravel.
- Marble, plexiglass and silicate brick. This is a separate category of blades that differ in a special shape of their cutting edge and amount of diamond grit.
Using such blades you can perform both dry and wet cutting.
Blades are also classified according to manufacturing process:
Blades with diamond grit sintered. This is the easiest way of manufacturing the cheapest blades for cutting low-density stone.
Blades produced by thermal crimping. We offer these very blades for any cutting solid materials of mineral origin, including ceramic tiles. The manufacturing process of such blades takes place in a furnace at a temperature of about 600 degrees and a press, which presses grit into material with sintering simultaneously.
The more expensive way to produce blades for cutting ceramics and granite is laser welding. It allows to make blades with increased wear resistance.
Selection and use of diamond blades
When choosing sblades, you should keep in mind the following points:
- Type of processed material. There is a variety of accessories on the market that can be used to cut silicate brick, marble, granite, ceramics and even reinforced concrete. Therefore, deciding to purchase a blade, first clear up what it is for. However, there are also multipurpose blades which are able to cut various mineral materials.
- Depth of cut. Blade size and a type of a power tool, which it will be installed on, will directly depend on this. For example, for a through cut of a broadside 10 cm thick you will need a professional blade. You can also turn the product over if it is possible.
- An important factor when choosing a blade is its rotation speed. Each manufacturer, in addition to size, indicates rotation speed on blades. This is necessary to maintain cut quality and avoid chips.
