Why Concrete Blades are Flat
Concrete blades are built for resilience and durability for obvious reasons: they are meant to cut through some of the hardest surfaces. While there are some variations in concrete blade design and application, they are all flat.
Benefits of Flat Concrete Blades
Like most saw blades, concrete blades are flat, thin, and extremely strong. The blades are specially engineered to resist hard materials like cured concrete, asphalt, and other highly abrasive materials. Many blades feature slant segments and drop segments to prevent the blade from undercutting and guard against wear of the steel core.
Additionally, flat, thin blades can make precise, narrow cuts into concrete that thicker blades can’t make. Flat blades also cut very fast and their structure makes them ideal for accuracy when cutting. Many flat concrete blades also feature sound dampening to reduce the noise produced during cutting. This is particularly helpful on thick, reinforced concrete.
Flat concrete blades offer diversity in application as well. They can be used to cut through various types of materials and aggregates other than concrete such as brick, natural stone, and asphalt. They can also be used on a variety of saws like power cutters, circular saws, and flat saws.
