These blades have the same triple chip grind with deep gullet design that allows you to rip or crosscut with splinter-free results in both hard and soft wood but is mainly designed and will last longest when cutting through laminates/melamine, chipboard as well as rip and crosscut plywood with splinter-free results. Classified as an Orange Chrome Blade, upgrades over the existing, standard CMT Melamine & Chipboard Blades are -
Special Industrial Chromium Micrograin Carbide (0.5µm) reduces the cutting edge abrasion; while improving cut quality and extending the tool life. Combined with Mirror Finish Sharpening, which features less than 0.25µm Rmax edge roughness; it guarantees extra-clean cuts and extended tool life.
They also have a special Chrome Coating which -
- Protects from overheating
- Protects against corrosion and rust
- Reduces resin build-ups
- Improves chip ejection
- Improves performance and cutting life
They are also a Low-Noise Saw Blade - slots are filled with orange polyurethane that reduces vibration and noise (<86 dB); whilst improving the cutting quality and extending the tool's lifetime.
