How to Choose : Grinder Blades
All of our masonry grinder cutting blades are diamond blades
Diamond blades are the most premium blades for grinders as they stay sharp for longer period of time giving you the most value for money and longest lasting blade. The list of materials that diamond blades can cut through is too extensive to name every single item.
What do we know about diamonds (besides being expensive)? It’s the hardest mineral known to man. Diamond ranks as the hardest material as it will scratch basically anything. This is why a diamond blade is necessary masonry cutting.
Diamond blades are available with different rim or edge configurations including segmented, continuous, and turbo with the type of rim affecting how the blade cuts. The segments or rim are fixed to the blade through the process of brazing, laser welding, or sintering.
Segmented Blades (dry cutting)
Segmented blades typically have medium to hard bonds for a range of wet and dry cutting applications. While these blades can offer a relatively smooth cut with a fast cutting speed, chipping may still occur. They are durable and have a long blade life compared to other blades.
They are ideal for cutting a variety of materials including marble and granite slabs, concrete, asphalt, brick, block and other building materials.
The spaces of air that separate the segments are called gullets. The gullets are there to improve air flow, dissipate heat, and remove slurry from the cut, helping to maintain the blade’s cutting performance.
Continuous Rim Blades (wet cutting)
Continuous rim blades have softer bonds for cutting hard materials. These blades don’t have individual segments but instead have a solid, continuous rim or edge. Most continuous rim blades are designed for wet cutting applications, providing the smoothest chip free cuts.
They are ideal for cutting a variety of materials including tile, porcelain, granite, stone, glass, and other materials that can chip easily
Turbo Blades(wet or dry cutting)
Turbo blades typically have soft to medium bonds for a variety of general purpose to specific cutting applications. Turbo blades feature a continuous rim with an edge that is serrated. This serrated edge is designed to the give the blade faster cutting speeds while maintaining a smooth cut, combining the best qualities from both segmented and continuous rim blades.
They are ideal for cutting a variety of materials including tile, stone, marble, granite, masonry and other building materials. Blades are for both wet and dry cutting applications.
