Cutting Through Materials the Right Way

Wood, metal, stone and clay are just a few of the common materials that can be found in structures. As commonplace as these resources might be, they all have to come from somewhere and knowing how to properly treat them can make all the difference to a successful construction project. It’s not just harvesting them at the source to consider either; in fact many DIY projects require structural treatment and preparation, and the first port of call are usually power tools.

When it comes to cutting materials to the correct proportions, there are a variety of tools available. From circular saws all the way to angle grinders, different jobs will require varying resources. The key to a successful project is to know which types of cutting utilities are best suited to which material. In the case of circular saws, there are a multitude of saw fittings to choose from, so here’s a closer look at the varying types.

Unitec Soft Cut Blades

These unique blades are best suited to the cutting of wood, but they can also be used to slice through softer metals like aluminium and mild steel. As long as the metal hasn’t been tempered, then it should be treatable with a soft cutter, but better options would be grinding blades. Soft cut blades aren’t named for their softer composition; they are simply better suited to eating through thinner or less dense materials, due to the gaps between each tooth of the blade.

Unitec Sprint General Purpose Diamond Blades

This type of blade can be utilised for a variety of needs; from cutting through soft wood and sheet metal all the way to slicing through pipes, bricks and even clay. The composition of the blade is made up of unique fibres, which means that even as the blade wears away with use; a diamond precision edge will be retained until the blade is too small to be used.

Unitec Sprint Segmented Diamond Blade

The benefit of having a segmented edge makes this type of blade able to cut through soft materials, but due to the close proximity of each segment; it’s also capable of tackling harder tasks, too. Many people prefer these types of circular saw blades over others – usually because they are simply so versatile. Able to cut through brick, concrete, wood and metal with relative ease (and depending on density), the strength of these blades comes from the through-hardening process utilised during their manufacture.

Unitec Blitz and Asphalt Sandstone Blade

What makes these blades unique when compared to the above alternatives, is that the structure predominantly consists of sandstone and other abrasive elements. Instead of a sharpened metal edge, this type of blade relies on the grinding action afforded by the abrasive sandstone composition. When used to cut hard materials, the circular motion works to grind away layer after layer – making it ideal for use during projects that require the cutting of hardened and tempered metal.
