How To Choose The Right Diamond Blade

Diamond blades are used in construction, civil engineering and related industries to cut a variety of materials. These blades feature a steel core body and a surrounding exterior cutting segment to cut brick, porcelain, granite, marble and other materials.

The segment is made up of a mixture of natural or synthetic diamond crystals and metal powders. The size, quality and quantity of the materials that go into the segment determine how the diamond blade will perform and the materials it can cut. For instance, larger diamond crystals are used for soft materials, such as asphalt, whilst smaller diamond crystals are used for hard materials, such as Quartz.
