What Is A Diamond Saw Blade And How Does It Work

Whether you are cutting through cement, brick, or tile, you will need a high quality diamond saw blade to get the job done quickly. There are many different diamond saw blades and components to choose from. Each diamond saw blade and their components are made specifically to cut through certain harsh materials. Some are made to cut through stone and brick. Others are made to cut tile and granite. Make sure you choose the right diamond saw blade for the job.

For instance, what makes a diamond saw blade. Diamond saw blades have key components that make them cut even more efficiently through harsh materials like stone, and brick. Diamond saw blades are made up of the metal core of the blade. The rim of this blade has segmented slots on the end of the blade so that it can hold the segmented diamond crystals in place while the blade cuts through the harsh material.

The synthetic diamonds are considered the true “blade”. They act as teeth or claws that grind right through the concrete or the brick. There is also a metal bond called the matrix which holds the diamond particles together while the blade is cutting. As the blade cuts these diamond particles wear away and this matrix keeps the diamonds from wearing faster therefore giving you the most out of the blade.

Each diamond saw blade is made different and specific to cut certain types of harsh material.
Diamond saw blades are made to cut through just about anything but they can’t do it alone. In order to cut through the material these blades will need to be spun or driven through the selected material. This is made possible by using diamond core bits. These diamond core bits are basically the drill reinforcement of the diamond saw blade.

These diamond core bits act as the transmission of a car. They are made to vary in RPM’s (revolutions per minute) so that the blade will cut through the selected material without it braking. Diamond core bits are crucial when cutting through any harsh material.
Some diamond cut saw blades are made especially to be used to cut harsh materials while applying running water to the diamond saw blade and the material it is cutting. This is very helpful in keeping the diamond saw blades temperature to a minimum. If the temperature gets too hot due to the friction of the blade cutting through the material, eventually it will get so hot that it will warp and then more than likely crack.

By applying water to cool the blade while cutting will prevent the blade from warping and cracking and in turn will save you a lot of money in replacements.
There are many different uses for diamond saw blades and diamond core bits. Choosing the right combination for the job you are about to take part in is crucial.

If you do not choose the correct diamond saw blade for the job you may just be throwing your time and money away. Like I said earlier each diamond saw blade is made especially to cut through certain materials and if you do not choose the one you need you might just be cutting through your wallet and not the job.
