In the realm of concrete cutting, diamond saw blades are the king.
While diamond blades are available in different edge configuration such as turbo, and segmented, one thing remains constant for all diamond blades.
Diamond blades are among the most advanced concrete cutting saw blades on the market.
Importantly, they deliver a superior level of performance that traditional blades cannot achieve. For instance, diamond blades are known for:
- Smooth cuts
- Better precision
- Faster cuts
- Being more comfortable to use
Diamond saw blades are made using a circular steel disk that has segments on the outer edge of the blade.
The segments consist of a combination of diamonds and metal bond powder.
To bond the diamond segments to the circular disk, the segments, and the bonding agent are placed under pressure and heat.
This process results in a blade that is not only effective but extremely durable.
Moreover, since diamond is the hardest material known to man, it will last longer without fading or losing its performance.
Traditional concrete cutting saws fail to attain such levels of durability. As such, concrete cutting contractors have to purchase their blades more frequently.
As you can imagine, diamond caw blades make for a more cost-effective concrete cutting experience.
2. Diamond Blades Yield Smooth Cuts
Popular diamond saw blades tend to achieve a smoother cut. For instance, the segmented blades have gullets, air spaces separating segments.
The gullets not only improve airflow, thereby dissipating heat, but they also evacuate slurry from the cut.
There is also reduced vibrations when using diamond saw blades.
However, the net effect of such a concrete cutting mechanism is the blade retaining its overall performance.
Higher-performance, in turn, ensures that the blade yields a smoother cut.
The benefit is a smoother cut to the overall structure, especially …
