Composite-friendly: Cuts faster, with a better finish & no fibre damage. Gritted blades have thousands of cutting edges and cut with a ‘grinding’ action rather than the aggressive ‘ripping’ action of toothed blades, reducing the risk of de-bonding fibres from the matrix. The edge of a carbon tube cut with Carbocut is smooth and without sharp or uneven edges, saving the sand-paper time.
Smooth-cutting action & better control: Carbocut blade cuts both on push and pull stroke, providing more control and less vibrations. Being 19mm (3/4”) tall, the blade itself is an additional guide for straight cuts. Spacers or washers might be needed to use the WC blade with some cut jigs, due to the slightly wider cut-width (1,6mm instead of 0,9 of a standard blade).
Durable blade: WC blades greatly outlive standard metal toothed blades, especially when cutting difficult materials (like composites).
What it cuts: composites, hard metals (hardened steel, cast iron, titanium) ceramic and masonry. Softer materials like wood, plastics or aluminium are more easily cut with standard toothed blades
