Diamond Blades: Uses and Design


Diamond blades are used for cutting a variety of concrete and masonry products. Unlike a traditional saw blade used to cut wood that uses a sharpened steel edge, a diamond blade cuts by abrasion. On the edge of the diamond blade, tiny diamonds are suspended in metal powder. The metal powder is then heated until it becomes extremely hard. As the diamond blade spins, the diamonds embedded in the metal powder segments on the edge of the blade abrade or scrape against the material being cut. Since the diamonds are harder than the concrete or brick they are cutting, and because they scrape at very high speeds, the diamond blade eventually cuts through the material. The percentage of diamonds in the segment and the quality of those diamonds have a huge impact on how well a blade will cut.

Diamond Blade Bond


Diamond blade choice is mainly determined by the hardness and abrasiveness of what is being cut. Different materials have different levels of hardness and abrasiveness. As a general rule, the harder a certain piece of masonry or concrete is, the less abrasive it tends to be. Hard brick or concrete requires a diamond blade to release the diamonds faster in order to cut properly. In order to let the diamonds go faster, the bond holding the diamonds in suspension needs to be weaker or softer. A diamond blade designed to cut very hard material like cured concrete or brick pavers is said to have a "soft bond". Abrasive materials like green concrete or asphalt require a diamond blade to hold on to the diamonds longer. In order to hold the diamonds in place, the bond is processed to make it stronger or harder. A diamond blade used for very abrasive material like asphalt is said to have a "hard bond". So, the harder a diamond blades bond, the softer and more abrasive the material it it intended to cut. And the softer the bond of a diamond blade is, the harder the material it is designed to cut. Blades made for cutting material or medium hardness or that are for general purpose across different kinds of material, will have a medium bond.

Diamond Tool: Safety


Always use proper safety equipment and techniques when using a diamond blade. Use properly rated hearing protection and eye protection whenever a power saw is in use. A full face mask like our Polycarbonate Clear Face Shield Kit from 3M meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 specifications. Also remember to wear pants and shirt that provide full leg and arm coverage and to wear good quality boots or closed toed shoes.
