Making your Diamond Saw Blades Last

Making sure your Diamond Saw Blades Last as Long as Possible

Here are some of the best ways to protect your diamond saw blades to ensure you make the most out of their lifespan.

Extending the life of your diamond saw blades is important for many. In fact, for those who understand the nuances of a diamond saw blade, making it last as long as possible is key. The reality is, if you have ever even used a diamond saw blade, then you understand how they end up being the perfect combination of sturdy and fragile all at the same time. As a result, it might not be simple to know how to properly care for your diamond saw blade to ensure it withstands the test of time. Here are some of the best ways to protect your diamond saw blades to ensure you make the most out of their lifespan.

Knowing The Specific Bond Matrix Your Diamond Saw Blades Have

When using a diamond saw blade, you will want to know what type of bond matrix you are dealing with. Your saw blades bond’s matrix typically refers to how strongly the diamonds are actually set into the metal itself. This means people need to always look at the specific bond matrix they have on hand. Ultimately, a softer bond matrix is traditionally better used for materials such as concrete. However, with a much harder bond matrix, it can best be used with softer materials like asphalt. Unfortunately, if used improperly, you can end up causing the diamonds to wear down a lot quicker than they would otherwise.

Using The Right Equipment To Match The Diamond Saw Blades Themselves

No matter the specific cutting equipment you are using, there is nothing more important than having the equipment match the blade you are using. Blades that typically have a lower performance will usually work better for those blades that compliment them. 

Bottom Line

There is nothing worse than possibly ruining your diamond saw blades. Making sure you extend the lifespan of your diamond saw blades becomes increasingly important for people looking to save money on their tools. The reality is, many tools will get used rather quickly over time, but if there are ways to save them and have them last a lot longer than they would otherwise, it might be the best approach to avoid spending money unnecessarily.
