Carbide Tipped Saw Blades for Plastics

Carbide Tipped Saw Blades for Plastics

Our plastic cutting carbide tipped saw blades are available with various tooth geometries, cutting angles and plate thicknesses, depending on the type of plastic and saw being used. In general, plastics can be considered "hard" or "soft".

HARD PLASTICS

When sawing hard plastics, a triple chip grind (TCG) with very hard C-4 carbide tips is recommended.

LOW-MELT PLASTICS

For softer plastics, a "low-melt" TC2 grind is recommended to keep the friction between the part and the saw teeth to a minimum, which helps prevent low melting-point plastics from overheating and melting during the sawing process.

THIN PLASTIC

Very thin brittle plastics such as extruded profile parts can be cut smooth with an alternate top bevel grind (ATB). For plastic under .093" wall thickness we recommend a HIGH SPEED STEEL (HSS) or SEMI-HIGH SPEED (SMC) blade.

As a general rule, use more teeth for thin material and fewer teeth for thicker material. Due to the many variables involved in plastic cutting, contact our technical sales to assist in choosing the appropriate blade for your application.
