This Composite Decking and Trim Blade works like a charm. Clean cuts with no "swirls".
I did not get the "melting" effect with this blade as opposed to a normal carbide blade.
The blade stays clean during use.
Produces clean cuts with no swirl marks
Intended for cutting composite decking and cellular PVC
For use on 7-1/2 in. circular saws

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raven Much better than expected, great for composite, also good general blade
Nothing like a new saw blade and 84 teeth make this one cut real smooth. Made for composite decking which it easily slices like butter. Blade changing on my compound saws is a pain so decided to give it a try on chopping some 2x6 fir which it handled with ease. This is a great blade for any composite deck project, appears it will last a good long while if not too abused with other materials. Sure it would cut hard woods too but I know that would wear it out more quickly so will keep this beauty for composite, pine and fir as intended. That way I can enjoy that smooth slice of cutting heaven that much longerwithn this excellent preforming blade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Worked well on everything I tried
I just completed a deck refurbishing using this blade on my DeWalt CMS, I'm far too lazy to swap blades when cutting different materials so I decided this would be a good torture test. Cellular PVC, pressure treated 4x4's, 1" by pine, 2" by spruce, aluminum flashing and even a hidden nail or two all cut cleanly, with no smoke, no problems and no apparent damage to the blade. I do make it a general rule to cut slowly rather than chop through material and to wax my blades with paste car wax to cut down on friction as I did with this one. I'm pleased with the performance of this blade and will continue to use it until it eventually wears out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farmgirl Long Lasting Saw Blade
We have used these blades before on projects that other "regular" circular saw blades couldn't stand up to like the engineered hardwood bamboo flooring we put in our house. That's when we first tried Diablo blades because the run of the mill blades, even name brands, couldn't cut through the material. Composite decking is similarly hard to cut through and Diablo has the solution with this blade. The Diablo blades cut better for us on our projects and last longer, much longer. This is a quality product that gets the job done. The difference is notable between these blades and others in terms of ease of cutting and durability of the blade.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillinMN Works Well
Would have rated 5 stars but does not clear cuttings well and can deform slightly causing an irregular cut if you plunge too fast into Trex decking. This was with a compound miter saw and once cut was through the board and chips could clear, it would cut beautifully and quickly. If cutting speed is important, recommend a sliding compound saw, I suspect it would cut composite decking much more easily and efficiently since blade wouldn't load up from having to lift material from the cut.
The non-stick coating appears to actually work with no plastic build up on the blade after several hundred cuts through Trex Transcends decking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Good buy
This is really a sharp saw blade, It is in a blister pack so be extra careful when taking the blade out. We didn't have any decking around the house and we wanted to try this blade out, So we got out a piece of pressboard and went to work anyway. The blade handled it with no problem, cuts fast, makes a real fine saw dust and really smooth cut. Bright red color makes it easy to find.
