Diamond Blades: Selecting the Right Blade

Diamond blades or diamond concrete blades are considered as one of the finest tools to use when cutting a concrete. These blades are utilized for building and cutting materials. These items are usually powered by a high speed saw which must be run by someone who is skilled to do so. These kinds of blades are indicated to have diamonds planted at the bottom of the blade so as to allow the cutting of hard materials. There a variety of types of diamond blades available in the market for you to choose from depending on your cutting application needs. In addition to concretes, these diamond blades can also cut other materials such as bricks, asphalt, stone, glass as well as ceramics.

You can use diamond blades for various types of materials. In order for you to be able to select the right type of blade, it would help to think of the materials being cut as parts of a spectrum running from soft to hard materials. Materials that belongs to the hard end of the scale like granite will not be abrasive. On the other hand, materials that are included at the soft end spectrum such as asphalt will be abrasive. Materials in the center of the spectrum will be slightly hard, so it will be slightly abrasive. If the material is hard, then it is less abrasive and if the material is soft, then it is more abrasive. In order to recognize the material types, remember the following list. Granite, paving brick, quartz, flint, and field stone are just few examples of hard materials. Concrete with aggregate such as limestone, dolomite, sandstone or marble are all considered a medium materials. While soft materials include block, asphalt, and green concrete.

If a user will only use one type of material to be cut, then he should get a blade that are especially made and marketed for such material. If there is no material type cited on the retail packaging on the blade, it would be wise not to buy the tool. Single application blade are typically more costly as compared to the general use blades. However, you should not think too much on the upfront price. As compared to the general use blades, application specific blades last much longer and its cut is more efficient and much faster for the specific material. This only means that in just a short amount of time, the user can be able to spread the cost of the diamond cutter blade over more cuts. After a long period of time, a single purpose blade is actually very inexpensive. The user will save not only time but also money by not having to switch blades often.
