|Resources: Choose the best Diamond Blade|
Diamond blades cut tough and abrasive materials such as concrete, asphalt or ductile iron quickly and safely. They include circular and chain blades with various edge configurations that handle a broad range of cutting tasks. Using the right blades in concrete or masonry saws can make short work of demolition jobs or produce accurate cuts and helps prevent chipping and spalling in fresh concrete.
These products include 14-inch and larger models that fit walk-behind wet saws, 12-inch blades for circular saws and small-diameter blades that you can use with handheld tile cutters and wet saws, grinders and masonry saws. Blades with thick edge segments, some with laser-welded bonds, offer long-lasting and reliable cutting performance. Most blades have standard arbor holes, so they fit masonry or concrete saws from any manufacturer.
A blade's edge design is an important consideration. Segmented blades help dissipate heat and remove slurry from the cut when used with a wet saw. Continuous rim blades produce smooth, chip-free cuts in hard materials. Turbo blades have a continuous rim with a serrated edge, a combination that makes fast and smooth cuts in a variety of materials. Using chain-style diamond blades with a chainsaw gives you the reach needed to make cuts in tight spaces.
Diamond saw blades use a variety of bonding materials to maximize their cutting performance across a broad range of materials. The bonding material erodes as you use the blade, exposing new diamond abrasive. Choose a product with a soft bond to cut hard surfaces such as porcelain tile, flint rock or cured concrete. Hard-bond saw blades stand up to abrasive materials such as asphalt, green concrete or sandstone.
Many construction and demolition tasks involve cutting stone, ceramic or porcelain tile, concrete and other hard surfaces. Explore our selection of concrete tools to find diamond blades with the edge configuration, bond hardness and diameter you need to make cuts in almost any hard material.
