Diamond blades are used for construction or renovation works to process various materials. However, they differ significantly in their intended use. For example, blades for concrete are more expensive than ones for brick but they are also more durable and wear-resistant.
In this catalogue you can find multipurpose blades and wheels for different materials and works.
What materials are such diamond blades intended for?
- Reinforced concrete or concrete articles without reinforced frame and any kind of brick. Processed material thickness should be no more than 10-15 cm.
- Granite and paving tile.
- Marble. For processing this material diamond blades which can guarantee cutting without spalls are selected. These blades are appropriate for silicate bricks and plexiglass too.
- Ceramic and glazed tile including ceramic granite tile.
- There are diamond blades for metal and professional abrasive wheels for asphalt as well.
- Multipurpose blades are suitable for all major types of solid materials.
All diamond blades differ in their cutting part:
- Turbo blades are known for highly precise cut at high rotational speed. It perfectly suits for glazed and ceramic tiles.
- Solid blades require coolant because they heat up quickly. Such blades are designed for precise smooth cut.
- Segmented blades cut not so precisely as conventional ones. They are suitable for brick and concrete. Thanks to their segments these blades cool in the air quickly.
How diamond blades are produced?
The efficiency of cut and surface processing depend on fraction of diamond grit, blade size, fixing of cutting part on the base of the blade and binder quality.
The diamond fraction and binder are sintered under high temperature. It contributes to blade properties and its minimal wear resistance.
There are several ways to bind diamond sand and the blade body.
- Sintering. It is a basic production method of blades.
- 2. Pressing. Diamond grits and binder are sintered at the temperature of 650 degrees.
- Laser welding is the most effective method of applying diamond fraction to the blade. It is used for blades that are intended for ultra-precise cutting.
Tips for choosing a diamond blade.
- A blade is selected specially for each power tool. There should be no chinks when installing blades. If power tool and blade diameters differ, they are corrected with special rings.
- Pay attention to the blade lifetime, i.e. how many linear meters of material it is able to cut. Blades differ in their intended use: they can cut concrete, brick, ceramic tile, stone. Using different blades for each type of work increases their service life. Multipurpose blades have a shorter service life.
- Please mind that rotational speed and marking should correspond. If they don’t, it may lead to premature deterioration or even damage of a tool.
- If you need a tool for professional use, we recommend to choose
European or domestic products. For reparation works in a small room you
can use Chinese tools as well. Their service life is not so long but they are enough for light renovation.
- Width and accuracy of cutting part are also important for the general purpose. For cutting concrete or asphalt you can use wider discs. If you cut tile, it is better to use thin solid discs, because gaps between teeth may damage surface roughly.
