What are diamond blades?

Diamond blades are saw blades that have diamonds fixed on their edge for cutting hard or abrasive materials. Diamonds are a type of super-abrasive that can grind or cut through materials that ordinary abrasives cannot, such as concrete, stone, tile, glass, ceramic, etc.

Diamond blades are made up of two components: the steel core and the diamond segment. The steel core is the round flat metal disc that supports the diamond segment and attaches to the saw. The diamond segment is the part that does the cutting and consists of diamond crystals embedded in a metal matrix.

Diamond blades come in different sizes, shapes, and types, depending on the type of material and cut you want to achieve.

What are the types of Diamond Blades?
  • Continuous rim blades, which have a smooth edge with no gaps. These blades are used for wet cutting and produce a fine and smooth cut. They are suitable for cutting tile, porcelain, marble, granite, etc.
  • Segmented rim blades, which have gaps or slots along the edge. These blades are used for dry cutting and produce a fast and rough cut. They are suitable for cutting concrete, brick, pavers, etc.
  • Turbo rim blades, which have a serrated edge with small gaps. These blades are used for both wet and dry cutting and produce a fast and smooth cut. They are suitable for cutting concrete, brick, tile, stone, etc.
How to extend the life of Diamond Blade?
  • Use the right blade for the right material. Different types of diamond blades are designed for different types of materials, such as concrete, tile, stone, etc. Using the wrong blade for the wrong material can cause the blade to wear out faster or damage the material.
  • Use wet cutting whenever possible. Wet cutting helps to cool down the blade and prevent overheating, which can cause the diamonds to glaze over or lose their sharpness. Wet cutting also reduces dust and friction, which can improve the quality of the cut and the life of the blade.
  • Dress the blade regularly. Dressing the blade means removing the glazed or dull layer of diamonds on the edge of the blade and exposing a fresh layer of sharp diamonds. This can be done by cutting it into a hard material, such as concrete or brick, for a few seconds. Dressing the blade can restore its cutting performance and extend its life.
  • Clean the blade properly. After each use, you should clean the blade with water and a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on the blade. This can prevent corrosion and rust, which can affect the quality and life of the blade.
